I have a Spring Webflow 2.0 application running under Tomcat 6.0 that needs to read a properties file. In a bean, I try to open and read the properties file, but no matter where I put the file, the JVM cannot find it (File Not Found exception). I ideally, we'd like the file to reside in the Tomcat config folder or elsewhere at that level. But I cannot find the file in either the application webapp folder or the Tomcat config folder.
How to do?
