Subject Re[2]: Newbie - Keep getting ResourceNotFoundException
Date Tue, 26 Nov 2002 20:16:02 GMT
Well I have searched the archives, and found a lot, but nothing that
helped me :( I want total controll over my servlet, so I rather not
use the VelocityServlet. I don't understand why my Servlet has
problems finding the template, since I give it the correct path to it,
I even tried to give it the HTTP path like this
"/myproject/mytemplate.yaf" (and if I requested this path manually
with my browser, I would get the template file). Could you maybe
explain to me what can possible be wrong, do I need to initialize
something, or what is it?
