    Changing Tomcat's working directory

    Hello All,

    Would anyone know of a way to change Tomcat's working directory to something besides the bin directory? (e.g. [tomcat_install]\bin)

    In case the answer is no, let me say that I'm trying to open a series of XML files from within my servlet. Currently, I have to write my paths relative to the bin directory, which is terrible. I want to keep the XML files in my WAR archive, and then have Tomcat execute out of the [exploded] project directory.

    I found a couple of resources that may help you. Basically you need to load your resources based on the context path (not sure if I'm using the right name for it).

    http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/ap...assLoader.html

    http://jboss.org/file-access/default...ceContext.html

    It should be almost identical to loading additional resources from a JAR file.
