Suppose I create my
in = new
, is there any way else to access parameters.xml without using the hardcoded-path that way?

If the path is relative to your application, then:
If you want a configurable path, place a configuration file where your application knows where to find it (relatively speaking) and read the path from the configuration file.
Correlation does not prove causality.

here is an example Code:
File f1 = new File("Test.java"); String path = f1.getAbsolutePath(); FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(path);
is this what you looking for..

Relative to what might be the question. This line:
File f1 = new File("..\Test.java");
will create a file relative to the current user directory. See
to get the current home.
You can also make a file relative to another file or a path
new File( homeDirectory, "..\Test.java" )
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
