hi
Can anyone help me on XSL transformer path using JSP.  I have this JSP
<%
Transformer transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(new StreamSource("../../java/MSquaredWeb/stylesheets/right_live.xsl") );
%>

How can I get rid of only partial path "../../java/MSquaredWeb" which is hardcorded and get dynamic content name.

I was told to use this belwo and get ... but have no idea how to use....

ServletContext context = getServletContext();
InputStream is = context.getResourceAsStream("/stylesheets/<name of your stylesheet>");

Only this should be harded coded "stylesheets/right_live.xsl" and rest should be the content name whatever Tomcat is using.

plz help

Have you tried using it?

getResourceAsStream does work off the context of the class used to call it...

so as long as you have:

webapps/YourApplication/stylesheets/whatever.xml

then

ServletContext context = getServletContext();
InputStream is = context.getResourceAsStream("/stylesheets/whatever.xml");

should work...

actually...thinking about it, I am not sure where the context is set to for jsps...  You may need to move your "stylesheets" directory into WEB-INF/classes
