    View Files Outside of Doc Root

    supercleanse Newbie

      Is there a way for me to access files from a directory on the filesystem of my Server that is not under the Resource Base, for instance --
      I want to statically serve files in the directory:
      file:/foo/bar
      But my document root is somewhere in the tmp directory...
      Another idea I had was to put a sybolic link into my web app to the other directory -- but jar will pull in physical documents from the link and I don't want that. I've heard many different ideas on this like you need to create a jboss-web.xml file to handle it or something -- Could someone please clarify this for me? Thanks.
