Serving static content
I'm developing a website with many pages. Most of these pages are static content, but I am also writing a servlet to handle some user queries. At the moment, most of the website is being developed by a team independently of the servlet.
My servlet will generate HTML web pages which need to include tags which reference .jpgs in the main website. Right now I have a copy of the static website on my harddrive. However, when I test my servlet, none of the images I link to a displayed.
The HTML I generate looks like:
While this displays correctly if I save the page to a file and then load the file in a web browser, no images display when the same page is served to the same web browser by GlassFish. I suspect GlassFish is refusing to resolve anything starting with file:// for security reasons.
Anyhow, how can I test out my servlet? I'd like to be able to have links that can display images from the static website files on my hard drive.
