How can I setup Tomcat to access external directory

Hi,

I am stuck with the same issue here.

I am using IntelliJ Idea 8, Tomcat 5x.

I have made an external folder C:/uploads/images and C:/uploads/docs  where in the uploads images and documents are stored.

When I start Tomcat from the command line i.e. startup.bat, the images can be accessed in the normal way like "http://locahost:8080/images/user1.jpg".

<Context path="/uploads" docBase="C:\uploads\" crossContext="true"/>

is the content of the xml file which I created and saved under C:\Tomcat\conf\Catalina\localhost

But the funny thing is that when I start Tomcat from IntelliJ Idea, it shows up

"HTTP 400 Bad Request"

How do I make this uploads directory accessible from my application.

Please help !

Regards,

broshni

Hello,

did you try to enable 'Deploy application configured in Tomcat instance' checkbox in Tomcat run configuration?
