I have a set of servlets that connect to an RMI server to fetch data.
These servlets also access the disk to get the details of the configurations from some xml files and set the logging destinations for log4j output files to some locations within the WEB-INF/logs directory.
I have used these servlets in Tomcat 5 and they work there because I set the policy in to "AllPermission" for all the servlets.
Where are the catalina.properties and the catalina.policy files in the JBoss 4.0 deployment ? If they do not exist, what files are their substitutes ?
They don't exist. You have to specify the java.security.manager property and java.security.policy on the command line used to start jboss.
