Cannot access sub-directory when war deployed in staging mode (Doc ID 953486.1)

Last updated on JULY 10, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When an application war TestApplication.war file is deployed in WLS 10.3 it creates

                 server\stage\TestApplication\TestApplication.war (a war file)

When the same application is deployed on WLS 8.1 it creates

                server\stage\TestApplication\TestApplication.war (exploded directory)

If there is a sub directory inside the application, here, tmp which I am accessing from code:

getServlet().getServletContext().getRealPath("/tmp");

In WLS 8.1 there are no issues. Path of tmp is returned. In WLS 10.3 Path returned is null.
