    Path for Property files in EAR deployments

    Bob OMalley Newbie

      A customary way to get access to a property file on disk within a WAR deployment is to use for example the code snippet:

      application.getResourceAsStream("/WEB-INF/myprops.properties");

      where application is the well known jsp member variable for the ServletContext. The application.getResourceAsStream() points to the root of the WAR deployment.

      I would like to nest several WAR files within one EAR deployment and have the EAR deployment contain the properties because they are common to all WARs in our environment. Does anyone know how to get a resourceStream pointing to the root of the EAR ? I am not intereseted in the a path for EJBs (some web apps don't use EJBs), I just want an EAR path.
