Hi Guys,

I am somehow not able to read a .txt file from a SystemClassloader.

I think I am missing out on something but unable to findout.

I would really appreciate if someone could help me out as I have a deadline tday.

I have a file which is saved on my C:\Server\temp33 folder.

This path I have included in my System class path when I start my Weblogic server in its startweblogic.cmd file

here is the snippet:


Now I want to read a file which is stored in the temp33 folder in my applet which is a part of a WAR which is a part of an EAR.

Snippet of The Applet where I am trying to read the file:

datainputstream = new DataInputStream(ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader().getResourceAsStream(filename));
System.out.println("GOT ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ** ");
System.out.println("GOT INPUTSTREAM -**> "+ datainputstream.available());

But I am getting a null pointerexception at GOT INPUTSTREAM -**

The filename is a variable which I am passing to the applet through my JSP.

It could be anything like xyz.txt.

I think I am doing all the steps properly but may be I am missing out on something .
