In earlier versions of JBoss AS it was possible to access external web resources (e.g. html files) via symbolic links from within an exploded Java EE Artifact (e.g. war, ear).
In AS 4 this could be achieved by setting allowLinking to true in the context.xml.
Can you please provide a possibility for JBoss AS 7.x (EAP 6) to provide/access these external web resources.
