Subject Mapping URLs to directories outside of a webapp.
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2004 15:09:31 GMT
Is it possible to map a URL to a directory outside of a webapps's context?

Our app has one directory that our customers use to store and display their 
own static webpages.  It would be useful to us to be able to keep that 
directory outside of the webapp's dir structure.  Sort of a 'virtual 
directory'  within a webapp.

This would allow users to upgrade our app by simply deleting the exiting war 
and redeploying with the newer version. They wouldn't have to worry about 
mobving thier pages out and then back in after the re-deploy.

We have customers running both *nix and windows so we can't rely on symlinks 
for this.

Thank you
