Please excuse me if this question is trivial - I am new to java web development.
okay - I have a war file that is being deployed onto websphere v6.
I have had to package this all up into an ear file. This is a spring/hibernate application.
The structure of my applicaiton is
EAR META-INF - application.xml - was.policy
Now - my war file looks for an external properties file which has our application startup properties. It is located in D:/data/config/myprops.properties
When deploying the ear file to WAS - I have made sure that D:/data/config is on the server classpath - however - when I start my application - I get a FileNotFoundException - even htough the file is there. Does anyone have any ideas? I beleive this could be a classpath issue - if so - how do I go about fixing this??? Is there some config I am missing?
