Load .mdb file from EJB

Hello !

I have a *.mdb file deployed within my ear. Which is located on Glassfish server like this:

- myDBFile.mdb
- myApplication-ejb_jar
- myApplicationWeb_war

The problem is that from EJBs perspective you can only use ClassLoader.getSystemResource(path) or equivalents of ClassLoader.methods.

However this leads me to deploy the .mdb database within a Jar. in my EJB project.

I would like to have it stored in EarContent of my project and access it from there. Is there any possibility to access files that are deployed along the ear from ejb context ?

I tried to get the context path of the ejb session , by using
but this doesn't really help much, as it only points to a path on the server and not on my project.

Can someone help me out, or point out whats wrong with the idea ?

Best regards,


PS: I know that it is against the restrictions of EJB, to access files in the filesystem. But it's more convenient to have the mdb file deployed within the ear for me.
