I have two projects in eclipse ,one is Web application and other is standalone.web application has deoendency with standalone ie I want to read some XML file which are placed in standalone application.I configured the as follows
In web application 's-build path i have added the standalone application and in dependency I also selected the standalone project.
When i deploy the application on Tomcat ,under the web application I can see standalone application.

When I run the code the XML file are not read from the standalone. so I extracted JAR from standalone and placed in the LIB of the web application ,now I read the XML files .

Can you please explain why it is not working if I added the standalone directly to web application in Eclipse

What does "the files are not read" mean? Are they found at all? Are there any exception?

If you want us to help you, then you need to TellTheDetails. Is the file located where the code expects it?

You're aware that web apps don't have a default directory, and that you need to absolute paths, right?
