Classloader problem in Websphere

Hello All,

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

- 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/

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?

Cheers all.

Can you shows the code (or XML property) that refers to this file?
