Hello Friends,
I have a simple question to all. I am developing a MDB. I have some configuration things and application related properties in a file

Normally in web application war, to make servlet or any java class file to read this we can keep in web-inf classes

But for EJB, where to keep such properties file to be read by ejb in ear.

I Kept in a folder called resources/ in ear root itself
and gave the path in manifest.mf of ejb.jar as

Classpath: resources/

But i am not able to pick it up. May i know the right approach for the same

Take a look at the method getResourceAsStream, it's useful for reading property files from within JARs.
