<jsp:forward page="/Reports/"+monfname+"/"+time +"/index.html" />

And Reports will have to be inside your webapps folder

hi,
In my case the reports will not be in my Webapps.
It might be anywhere in any drive like d:/ or e:/

in that case how to do this?

I don't think you can without setting up a virtual host thing...

page is a relative URL from the current page, not a fully qualified path to anywhere on your file system :-(

do you have to do a forward?  Can you include the file by reading it in using java.io.File API.

Hi,

Actually what i'm getting the value of the
monfname , time  in the jsp page and after getting those i'm creating a path

like ..E:\Reports\monfname\time\index.html ..

The pgae i want to display is like

 E:\Reports\20032012\121314\index.html ...

As i have the value for monfname and time..it should be exactly as above..
Now i want  to show the above html page...
How to do it? I think i have to do it thru <Jsp:forward>
If i can show it in any other way...
Your supports are welcome...
regards Arun.

Do it like cheekycj suggested...

Use a FileReader to read the file, and write it to the out stream

Hi,

No i don't want to use  filereader.
The issue is because of the root path.

So can any one suggest how to change the document root path .
Is it possible?                  
 and get the points for this question.

regards
Arun

it's in server.xml if you are using tomcat...

I wouldn't recommend this though...  it will mean that your entire drive is visible via the web...

What TimYates suggested is correct, I thought you wanted something programmatically but I do not believe that is possible.
