Can't load XSLT file during init

I'm trying to load my XSLT file during my servlet init. This line:
InputStream is = getServletContext().getResourceAsStream(xsltFile);

is giving me a null for the InputStream. Everything looks fine and I can see that xsltFile is the correct pathe to the file. I also tried to generate a URL using .getResource(xsltFile) and got a null for that. Is there some sort of registration or notification that I am missing?

No, what you are missing is that the getResourceAsStream() and getResource() methods don't expect to be passed the complete path to the file. They expect to be passed the path to the file, starting with a slash, relative to the web application's context root. (I got this information from the API documentation for the getResource() method of ServletContext.)
