Subject Re: Noob needs help with a webservice wich uses resources located in a folder

Hello

 First of all thank you for your answer. The owner of tomcat it's my 
user, but the problem is that my system doesn't have the group (or user) 
tomcat. I tried to launch tomcat as root (just as a test) moving the 
folder to the same place as the .class is, and later the same moving the 
folder to webapps/service/WEB-INF/lib folder... but nothing worked...

any other idea? I'll keep on trying.

Thank you!!
