HI am quite new to java programming and till now I am doing XSLT transformation on static location files

File xmlFile = new File("D://Dashboard.xml");

File xsltFile = new File("D://Dashboard.xslt");
But ,now i have kept these 2 files into path
WebContent/XML/Dashboard.xml
WebContent/XSLTL/Dashboard.xml

When i run my project it says file cannot found.
Kindly tell how do I get the actual path of these files so that at run time it picks the file from root directory and perform some operations.

Check out ServletContext and its getRealPath method. That takes a path relative to the web application's root folder, and turns it into an absolute path.
