I have webservices and Cron Job(impelments ServletContextListener) packaged into a Ear. Cron Job uses the Properties file to configure itself and property file is packaged in Ear.
But I have problem in loading of Properties using getResourceStream(). If I places Properties file under userDomain it is working fine for Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader() and ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader().getResourceAsStream. Can you please explain why it is not loading Properties file from the Ear.
