In spring project, I am generating some pdf file automatically in my application and storing it in $CATALINA_BASE in tomcat server. The path is :


I have given one hyperlink on webpage to access this file. But when I click on that link it is giving error in Chrome console as below:

 Not allowed to load local resource:D:\Project_Local\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core\tmp0\wtpwebapps\happyweb\images\User.pdf

What is the problem and how so resolve that?
