How do you load a properties file on the classpath within a jar?
I have class:
which gets packaged in a .aar and included in my axis deployment - it works fine. However, I want to use some configuration properties in the webservice, but cannot load properties from the classpath.
I have added a file in the package com.sample.package called "".
I have tried:
  • properties = (PropertyResourceBundle) ResourceBundle.getBundle("com.sample.package.application");

  • throws: java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find bundle for base name com.sample.package.application
  • InputStream input = BusinessClass.class.getClass().getResourceAsStream("/com/sample/package/");

  • throws nullpointer exception when I try to access input
  • InputStream input = ReportGenerator.class.getClass().getResourceAsStream("");

  • same nullpointer exception
