    config loading issue with 2.0.0.BETA2

    Kevin Williams Newbie

      I'm trying to get an instance of Cache using the following code:

      CacheFactory<String, String> factory = DefaultCacheFactory.getInstance();
      Cache<String, String> _cache = factory.createCache( _configFile, false );


      I keep getting the following error, no matter what file path syntax I use:

      org.jboss.cache.config.ConfigurationException: Input stream for configuration xml is null!
       at org.jboss.cache.factories.XmlConfigurationParser.parseStream(XmlConfigurationParser.java:72)
       at org.jboss.cache.factories.XmlConfigurationParser.parseFile(XmlConfigurationParser.java:63)
       at org.jboss.cache.DefaultCacheFactory.createCache(DefaultCacheFactory.java:57)


      I don't want my config file to be compiled into the jar, I want to use an external file. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas would be appreciated.

      The 1.4.1 version, PropertyConfigurator.configure, would try loading the given file path using a FileInputStream if the class loader couldn't load the file from the classpath. I'm confused why that was not carried over to 2.0 because it seems that would solve my problem.
