    Locating xml files from my bean

    Mark Gargan Newbie

      Hi there folks,
      I've been having this problem for quite some time and really hope you guys can help me.

      Basically from one of my beans I need to be able to access an xml file that is effectively a template for a document I create on the fly.. I've tried locating the file 'normal.xml' in the meta-inf directory of the ear file but when I try the code

      ------------------------------------------------------
      File test = new File("normal.xml");
      if (test.exists())
      System.out.println("Found normal.xml");
      else
      System.out.println("Couldn't find normal.xml");
      ------------------------------------------------------
      unfortunately it can't find it.. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to declare anything within the ejb-jar or the jboss.xml file or perhaps in the Manifest file? In fairness when I stick it in the jboss/bin directory it can find it but that really isn't an appropriate solution..

      Are there any examples out there with this done?

      Thanks again,
      Mark.
