Subject RE: loading resources from the servlet.
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2005 18:31:46 GMT
Thx Jon,
I had already looked at the wiki entry you graciously pointed me to. 
I need a bit more. The class X, I mentioned, is already packaged and I am
looking for a way of using it without changing it (unless there is no other
way.) It makes the assumption that the ../data folder is in the classpath.
In eclipse or via ant I can easily set my classpath 'right', is there a way
to do it for the webapp inside Tomcat?

Regards,
maciek

PS. What does "HTH" stand for?
