I have a properties file "" and i put it in config directory from the application root (web-inf/classes/config/ 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/"));
but this returns FileNotFoundException. i tried with other path ("") 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.
