my question is, How to read the text file which is present in the web-inf folder (web project) using relative path? I can able to read the data using hard code path (Absolute path, c:\temp\...). I am not able to read the file using relative path. My java file is present in com.trave.wss.tfim.sso location and I have used ..//..//..//..//..// while declare text file location. In run time file not found exception is occurred because system not able to locate the text file. I am not sure where i am doing mistake.
Are you really using ...//...//...// on Windows to define the file location? That won't work; surely you mean C:\\DocumentsAndSettings\\MyDocuments\\MyFolder\\MyFile.txt? Try opening the file with a JFileChooser and then using the getPath() getAbsolutePath() etc methods of java.io.File find out what to put as the path. You can presumably only use a relative path if the text file you are looking for is in a subdirectory of the directory you have your Java executables in, so it is probably only possible to get at a file in C:\temp with the absolute or canonical path.
