this is my first question here (but won't be my last).
I've put the path to a networkshare in an environment variable of my context.xml in a Java Web Project. The path contains an '$'-sign.
When I read this variable into my servlet the '$' is ommitted. I've tried to escape it, but this doesn't seem to help.
As a temporarily solution I've created a workaround by substituting the '$' by another symbol and then replace this in my servlet.
But can someone tell me what is going on here?
Context ctx = new InitialContext();
folderPathAZ = (String)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/path_to_networtkshare");
