I need to place an xml-file under my application classpath. But where can i find this class path ? And i think it's the %tomcat_home%/webapps/MyWebApp/WEB-INF/classes or tomcat_home%/webapps/MyWebApp/WEB-INF/lib directory. But just to make sure (because it's not working): is this correct ?

I think you need the getRealPath method in ServletContext.
I agree. Here's the link:
