I have a properties file "application.properties" and i put it in config directory from the application root (web-inf/classes/config/application.properties) and deploy the application in weblogic 7.0.2
in the same directory (config) i have a Configurator class (Congurator.class) that tries to read this file. however i could not figure out how to specify the path for the properties file
currently i have:
properties.load(new FileInputStream("/config/application.properties"));
but this returns FileNotFoundException. i tried with other path ("application.properties") but it return the same exception.
if anyone know how to fix this, please help me.. this one really drives me crazy =(
many thanks.

You can access this as a url and get an input stream from that. Take a look at the URL class.
