I have a file called error.txt that exists on the classpath - How can I read this file using the FileReader class.
This file exists in com.test.errors package.

Thanks in advance

That would depend on what package you're in when reading it. Assuming the same, try:
Reader in = new FileReader(new InputStreamReader(getClass().getResourceAsStream("error.txt")));

Open in new window
