Reading the resource from war file

Last Modified: 2013-11-24
Hi All,

I have a war file which contains some  configuration files that I need to use in my application

How can I do this??



I am using JSF
I have class called FacesContext where it can handle JSF pages.

In order to handle JSP/Servlet pages,  FacesContext has method has getExternalContext method that helps to get the Servlet Objects.

Here is the code snippet.

        FacesContext requestCtx=FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
        ExternalContext externalContext=requestCtx.getExternalContext();
        HttpServletRequest request=(HttpServletRequest)externalContext.getRequest();
        HttpServletResponse response =(HttpServletResponse) externalContext.getResponse();

Now please let me know how can I read the resource from war file using any of these  objects.  
My resource files are under /configfiles/ of war file
