I have a text file version.txt and it is present in the following location: EAR/xyzApp and this xyzApp has the version.txt file along with other jars.

I want to access/read the contents of this version.txt file into the jsp . I want to know what woud I access(the path) this text file  onto my jsp which is present in a webapp inside a directory called WAR. WAR and EAR are in the same levels of hierarchy.

Here is the jsp scriplet  I wrote:


<%@ page import=" java.io.*" %>
<%

try
        {

               FileReader fr   = new FileReader("/EAR/xyzApp/version.txt");
               BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(fr);
               String buildVersion;
             

                 while ((buildVersion = br.readLine()) != null)
                 {                
                  out.println("The buildVersion is --->"+ buildVersion);
                 
                 }
            }
           
           catch (IOException e)
            {
                               out.println("Uh oh, got an  IOException error!");
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
           
            %>
