    Another XML file for configuration.

    Guilherme Bautto Newbie


      I would like to know if is possible to have another XML file (instead of component.xml) or another complementary file.

      For example:
      I would like to have a component file in web-inf and another file, complementing in meta-inf.
      Is it possible?

          I use something like this. I have a XML Property file in my applications. I put this file in the JBOSS's conf directory. I load him using this code:

          public class ConfigurationLoader {
              public static Configuration loadConfiguration(final String baseName) throws IOException {
                  URL url = null;
                  url = getResourceAsURL(baseName);
                  final Properties properties = new Properties();
                  if (baseName.matches("((.)*)\\.xml")) {
                  } else if (baseName.matches("((.)*)\\.properties")) {
                  } else {
                      throw new UnsupportedOperationException("Tipo de arquivo não reconhecido!");
                  return new Configuration(properties);
              public static URL getResourceAsURL(final String resource) throws FileNotFoundException {
                  final String stripped = resource.startsWith("/") ? resource.substring(1) : resource;
                  URL url = null;
                  final ClassLoader classLoader = Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader();
                  if (classLoader != null) {
                      url = classLoader.getResource(stripped);
                  if (url == null) {
                      url = ConfigurationLoader.class.getResource(stripped);
                  if (url == null) {
                      url = ConfigurationLoader.class.getClassLoader().getResource(stripped);
                  if (url == null) {
                      throw new FileNotFoundException(resource + " not found.");
                  return url;
