    JBOSS 6: Exploded War - path not found

    oakleyx Newbie



      Here is my situation:  I'm using JBoss 6 and when I try and deploy my war, the war explodes and is stored in the Virtual File System. I have code thay when the application starts up, it tries to read an xml file in the the WEB-INF directory. I'm getting the following runtime exception:


      ERROR [org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[jboss.web].[localhost].[/].[ActionServlet]] Servlet.service() for servlet ActionServlet threw exception:

      java.lang.RuntimeException  C:\jboss-6.0.0\server\default\deploy\test.war\WEB-INF\classes\security.xml (The system cannot find the path specified)


      Now if I just explode the war manually and drop the contents in the deploy directory, the application works perfectly.


      So I think what i need to do, is some how figure out how to access the file in the VFS.


      Currently this is the code that i'm calling to return the path:


      ClassLoader loader = Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader();

      URL url = loader.getResource(this.filename);



      String path = url.getPath();

      repos = new File(path);




      Any Ideas on how I can find out how to get the virtual path?


      Could it be a configuration issue?
