Subject: [jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - reading a file stored outside the .war


we are developing a servlet here that will read the content of a couple of files and outputs binary data.
rather than storing our base-files in a database (which would be quite slow, given the size of our files) or putting them in the .war (which would prevent us from later adding files short of rebuilding/redeploying) we want to store them in a local folder of the system where our jboss-instance runs and open them as files via FileInputStream:

o) where would be the "proper" directory to store those files?
o) is there a "proper way" to do this (obvious extensions will be a file-upload/management servlet as a next step)?

thanks for any help that can point us into the right direction!
