I am trying to use Server.Mappath in a Class library ( DLL Developed in C#).
After some research i found that i should be using the following command to get the Server path from the DLL.


I am using the following code

using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;

String Filename;
Filename = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath + "test.xml";

but I get this exception.
::Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Your help will be appreciated.
