the VelocityViewServlet uses the WebappLoader (also in the
VelocityTools project) as its resource loader by default.  it
programmatically configures Velocity to do this and registers the
loader as "webapp" rather than "file".  this means that the value(s) you should be specifying/adjusting in
order to add a directory from which templates may be loaded is:

webapp.resource.loader.path = foo

the above one would cause the WebappLoader to also check the "foo"
directory under the webapp root.

hope that helps.
