Last Modified: 2012-05-12
The  following jsp program works well in tomcat but i get an error message in weblogic.  The

error that i get in Weblogic is as follows

doc_ss.jsp: 42:13: No method with this name could be found at this location.
String path=getServletContext().getRealPath(“/ns.txt”)
No method with this name could be found at this location,   getRealPath(java.lang.String) in type <error>
String path=getServletContext().getRealPath(“/ns.txt”).  Please tell me what is the correct syntax for Weblogic

<%@page contentType="text/html" pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<%@page language="java" import="java.io.* "%>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"


        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

String textToTextArea = "";
String path=getServletContext().getRealPath("/ns.txt");
File file = new File(path);
FileReader in = new FileReader(file);
int c;
char ch;
while (( c= in.read()) != -1){
textToTextArea += ch;


    <FORM id="frmnotification" name="frmnotification" action="doc_ss.jsp" method="post">
           <textarea cols="300" rows="30" name="txtnotification" class="txtarea-style"><%=textToTextArea%></textarea>
