I have an <a> tag where the href property is pointing to a local file on my c drive at "c:\tmp". Is does not work in Tomcat 7.
However if I take the page source and create a text file called "MyFile.html" and then I open it in IE or Firefox the <a> links work fine. I am thinking there must be some security issue with Tomcat so that the webpage can't use the local file.
Any suggestions on how I can use local files for my <a> tag href properties and have the link work in Tomcat 7?
