Adding folder to classpath - tomcat

I feel like a bit of an idiot here but am am frustrated with my attempts to add a folder to the classpath. I am running tomcat from within IJ and i have my properties file in a folder that is not part of source. (src/test/resources)

What i did was to rigt click that folder and mark it as a source folder (which made it turn blue). However when tomcat starts up it does not see the file. I tried making both test and test/resourfces as a source folder but with no success.


however if i keep that properties files under src/main/resources all is well.


thx in advance

Re: Adding folder to classpath - tomcat



Your workflow is not clear for me, please provide more details:


How do you deploy the properties file to Tomcat? - is it part of a WAR being deployed to Tomcat?
Do you build your WAR as the IDEA artifact (Project structure->Artifacts) or do you build it externally with maven?
