    serve external directory outside war dynamically/statically using jboss-web.xml

    Kavinaesh Dheenadayalan Newbie

      I am deploying a war with just a html file and javascript file on jboss 7.1.

      I need to access a source file which is not part of war. My html will only have this location d3.json('C:/finite/radial/data/radialOp.json'

      Another process will be updating this json after the war is deployed. The html in my web application should be able to reflect the updated data from the json everytime the json is updated without having to deploy the json again.

      Or if someone can guide at least for static file, that will also be helpful. I tried the below jboss-web.xml. It does not work. Please guide me how I can accomplish this.

       

      I checked the below links. But this did not give me what I need.
