Subject symbolic links and applications
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2003 21:04:03 GMT

I have an application running under tomcat that stores a bunch of files in
a directory.  In the normal everyday use of the application users login to
the app and then can get at these files.  However if a user figures out
the URL then they can browse directly to the location of the files without
logging into the application.  BTW the path to the files is a symbolic
link in the ...../webapps/app/ directory, pointing to the real location of
the data.

Does anyone have aview whether this is a problem with the application
itself or with the tomcat config.

Cheers all - Steve
