problem on loading a XML file using Class.class.getResourceAsStream method

I'm trying to create an InputStream for reading data from a XML file using the following statement :
InputStream in = Class.class.getResourceAsStream(XML_FILE);
This is being done within a static synchronized method.

I am getting the following exception message :-

[19/04/04 14:12:04:391 BST] 6f9fd8e7 WebGroup      E SRVE0026E: [Servlet Error]-[Generic Application Error: RemoteException occurred in server thread&#59; nested exception is:
      java.rmi.RemoteException: &#59; nested exception is:
      java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError]: java.rmi.ServerException: RemoteException occurred in server thread; nested exception is:
      java.rmi.RemoteException: ; nested exception is:
      java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
java.rmi.RemoteException: ; nested exception is:
      java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: InputStream cannot be null
rethrown as test.intranet.exception.ApplicationError: Generic Application Error: RemoteException occurred in server thread; nested exception is:
      java.rmi.RemoteException: ; nested exception is:
      java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

I have used the this.getClass().getResourceAsStream(XML_FILE) statement within another class (not in a static method) and this worked fine.  

I wonder if anyone could shed light on my problem ?

You don't want the Class class. You want the main class class, i.e. getClass().getResourceAsStream

i.e. if your main class is called 'X' then you need

X.class.getResourceAsStream
