Hi everyone!
I have to read an xml file in my application. The file should be in the war, and the path to this file in .properties file. The properties file looks like this:


I tried to store the books.xml in the application root, in WEB-INF directory and in the directory where my .java file are.
I really don't know why when I deploy the application the file cannot be found and I get System cannot find the file specified all the time.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
