# relative path for XSL

I am having trouble referencing my stylesheets in a relative way. Currently, we have the paths to the style sheets hardcoded. (The JSP pages that contain the following lines are in the tm directory)
processor.process(new XSLTInputSource(doc.getDocumentElement()), new XSLTInputSource("file:c:\\progra~1\\allaire\\jrun\\servers\\default\\tm\\xslfiles\\loadstatus.xsl"), htmlstream);}catch(Exception e){System.out.println(e.getMessage()); e.printStackTrace();}
When I try different things for the parameter to the 2nd XLSTInputSource class instantiation, nothing seems to work:
What do I need to do to make the relative path work? We will be deploying this on different servers so we don't want to have to set up some absolute path.
Thanks for the help!

I got it now. I needed to include the application root directory in the path name. So something like the following works:
processor.process(new XSLTInputSource(doc.getDocumentElement()), new XSLTInputSource("tm/xslfiles/result.xsl"), htmlstream);
