Subject Error starting static Resources, With Network drive
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2008 21:16:13 GMT
Hi
I am running tomcat on Windows XP, i have mapped a network drive to this PC
running Tomcat.
Under \conf\Catalina\localhost i created a xml file for specifying document
root
This XML file contains following code

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<Context crossContext="true" path="/myproject" displayName="myproject"
docBase="K:\\myproject\WebRoot\\">
</Context>
WhereK:\\myproject\WebRoot\\ is the network drive,
I am getting following error when i start tomcat
EVERE: Error starting static Resources
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Document base K:\myproject\WebRoot does
not exist or is not a readable directory

If i have the same docBase to local drive like C:\\myproject\WebRoot\\
Then it works,
What may be the reason, is it possible to do so or not?
