Velocity Templates with Servlets

Hi, im trying to use velocity templates within a servlet get method.
i keep getting the error: Resource not Found for the ".vm" template file.
Below is the code i've used:

VelocityEngine ve = new VelocityEngine();
Properties props = new Properties();
String path = getServletContext().getRealPath("/");
props.setProperty( "resource.loader", "class" );
props.setProperty(Velocity.FILE_RESOURCE_LOADER_PATH, path+"WEB-INF" );


VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext();
context.put("username", "administrator");
Template template = null;

template = Velocity.getTemplate("documentum-config.vm");
/*render the template into a Writer, here a StringWriter */

StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
template.merge( context, writer );

File file=new File("/WEB-INF/documentum-config.xml");
FileOutputStream fos=new FileOutputStream(file);
DataOutputStream dos=new DataOutputStream(fos);

Any pointers are welcome !

I agree. Here's the link:
