How can I retrieve the last modified date of a file in the IFS? I've tried the following but all I get is a 0.

File helpFile = new File("http://www.mysite.com/extranet/Documents/help.pdf";);
modDate = helpFile.lastModified();

Nevermind, I found the problem  I needed to replace

File helpFile = new File("http://www.mysite.com/extranet/Documents/help.pdf";);

with

File helpFile = new File(getServletContext().getRealPath("/Documents/help.pdf"));%>

works like a champ now.
