Subject Newbie - Keep getting ResourceNotFoundException
Date Tue, 26 Nov 2002 19:36:53 GMT
I'm trying to make a simple HelloWorld example, and I'm doing this
from inside the doGet method in a servlet:

VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext();
context.put("name", new String("Velocity Test"));
Template template = null;
try {
  template = Velocity.getTemplate("mytemplate.vm");
catch(Exception e){

Where does it look for the template? Can it be on the file system, or
must it be accessible via HTTP? I have now tried to pint it directly
to the path where the file is, and i get this error:

org.apache.velocity.exception.ResourceNotFoundException: Unable to
find resource

And the file is there!? Please advice, what is my (simple) problem?

Med venlig hilsen/Best regards,
 Søren Neigaard
