Here is my first jsp page for translating xml against xsl.
The path should be changed if I copy it to another machine, like c:\root\result.xml.
How can I the the actual path and I don't care the path before the file name?

Thanks.

<%@ page
     import=     "java.io.*,
               org.w3c.dom.*,
               javax.xml.transform.*,
               javax.xml.transform.stream.*,
               java.io.*"
%>
<%

     StreamSource xml = new StreamSource(new File("C:/java/jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3/webapps/ROOT/test/result.xml"));
     StreamSource xsl = new StreamSource(new File("C:/java/jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3/webapps/ROOT/test/result.xsl"));
     
     StreamResult result = new StreamResult(out);
     
     TransformerFactory tFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
     Transformer transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(xsl);

     transformer.transform(xml, result);
     
%>

 Well you certainly cannot change it if you hard code it. At least not without recompiling. WhatI would suggest is to read the path from a configuration file. Doing it this way you only have to change the configuration file and not the source code. Using resourceBundler is a very good idea.

  If you do not want to have a configuration file you can always read the path using the System class through the "System.getProperty("<property here>");" piece of code (like System.getProperty("java.class.path") for example).

  Hope it helps.

yah you can do as said by girionis
the code looks some what like this
first step is to keep the property file in known directory say java home
then
read the path of property file
<%
String path = System.getProperty("java.home");


    StreamSource xml = new StreamSource(new File(path+"/result.xml"));
    StreamSource xsl = new StreamSource(new File(path+"/result.xsl"));

System.getProperty("java.home") equals c:\java\j2sdk1.4.0\jre not the home of web server.
