use ServletContext.getResourceAsStream() to access any file in the war
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/sdk_1.3/techdocs/api/javax/servlet/ServletContext.html#getResourceAsStream(java.lang.String)

or

use getClass().getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream() to access files in WEB-INF/classes:
http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2/docs/api/java/lang/ClassLoader.html#getResourceAsStream(java.lang.String)
