I am having a helper class which is used by servlet. Now i am trying to load a xml file in my applications WEB-INF/classes dir by only giving the file name (since it is directly under classes folder). but it is referring to c:/documents and settings/userhome dir. can any one tell me how to get the xml file from classes directory.

Thanks and Regards,

You can use ServletContext.getResource() or getResourceAsStream().
Give it a path relative to the root of your webapp.
