Hi all,
In my servlet is unable to locate dtd for given xml as when i give relative path in DOCTYPE
My status.xml,status.dtd files are in c:\
and in that when i gave
<!DOCTYPE status SYSTEM "c:\status.dtd"> my servlet is recoginising dtd

But when i gave
<!DOCTYPE status SYSTEM "./status.dtd">
<!DOCTYPE status SYSTEM "status.dtd">

it is not getting the file and is searching in C:\Tomcat 5.5\status.dtd
how we can make more platform independent by giving relative path there

please suggest me..
