Class path not loading from web-inf/classes

Martin Thorpe Newbie


I have been asked to start a new issue for this.


Using AS 7.1.1 final


I have a file stored in web-inf/classes dir for simple loading to the class path.

This file is stored in



I load the file like this



Then I get a file not found exception from JBOSS because it cannot load the file from this location



There is not bin/content directory.

It suprises me that this does not work out of the box. Most of my daily work is with WebSphere which has no problems with this.

Normally web-inf/classes is loaded onto the class path.


Any ideas what the issue is? Seems like a bug to me as the location it is searcing in bin/content does not even exist. It obviously finds the file on the class path.


thanks for reading
