I am using this code and trying to run on unix environment.

DocumentBuilderFactory lDocBuilderFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder lDocBuilder = lDocBuilderFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document lDoc = lDocBuilder.parse(new File(/cram/ext/cramprop.xml));

It throws exception...

File 'file:///cram/ext/cramprop.xml' doesn't found....

I want to have absolute path... any solution how I can do that ?

That looks like an absolute Unix path to me. What's the problem?
I agree. Here's the link:
