I have some large data files that I want to keep separate from myapp.war. I tried creating a symbolic link that points to the data but I can't access the data. I did some reading and found this for Tomcat:
But I don't know where to set this. There is no entry in the jbossweb.sar/server.xml that is close to this. I am new to JBoss and Tomcat, hitting the ground running 8-) What is the best way to accomplish this? How can I get JBossWeb to follow symboplic links? I have seen some remarks that say not to use sym links due to security. What is the "best practice?"
