FileNotFoundException with relative path

I am having an action class and inside my action class i want to refer to an html file in the following directory : webContent/templates/check.html.

I am able to access this file if i specify absolute path, but when i give relative path, it gives a FileNotFoundException.

How do i solve this?

I was able to do this through the ServletContext
