Hello Friends,

I wrote a simple java service and deployed using jwsdp-1_0_01 tools kit.
My service need to read some configuration information for processing it.

I kept the file in "/home/jagan/jwsdp-1_0_01/work/Standard\ Engine/localhost/hello-jaxrpc/WEB-INF/classes"
that where the application was deployed.

My scripts for service is as follows for service implementation

package hello;

import java.util.Hashtable;
import java.util.Dictionary;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.StringTokenizer;

public class HelloImpl implements HelloIF {
    public String sayHello(String s) {
      Hashtable file_location = new Hashtable();
      String line;
      StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer();
      try {
      BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
             new FileInputStream(""), "JISAutoDetect"));
      while(true) {
      String str = in.readLine();
      if(str == null) { break; }
             tokens = new StringTokenizer(str, " ");
    catch(FileNotFoundException e)

   catch(UnsupportedEncodingException e1)

   catch(IOException e2)

       return file_location.get(s)+"";
       return "No data found on server for " + s;

In fact while packaging the files, I packaged the
data file along with other class files. While
deploying, the tool kept at this location.
Where do I need to keep for my web service to read
text file.
    Is there any body have any idea.
with regards,
