XML parser search for DTD

I am using Struts and the the XML config files refer to the DTD that are stored locally on the same directory as the XML files. I refer to the DTD files from the XML using SYSTEM and the the name of the DTD file without any path element. I am using the Xerxex parser. The parser does not find the DTD and complains of a missing base URL. What am I doing wrong?
More importantly, can someone tell me what rules the parser uses when searching for a DTD in a web application as the web applications are hosted by a web container and have only the concept of a context root for its file system.
Thanks in advance,
Raj Auradkar
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
