You don't need to set any path. All that's required is to do what is specified in my link about Eclipse

Yes, getResourceAsStream() would be the preferred way to go, to access a file that's on the classpath. Whether this .csv file *should* be on the classpath is another question...

Are you sure that you want the whole file as a String? I would guess that the code after that would need to split that string based on newline character anyway so that you can process each individual line. It sounds like it would be wasted effort to concatenate the whole file into one string only to have it split up again.

Can you refactor the code to accept a Reader object? Or at least a List/array of Strings that are each line in your file? If you can post more of your code that uses the content of this file, we can help further.

Loading files as resources is preferable to using relative or even absolute file paths. In order to do that, they have to be on the classpath

Loading a file directly into a String is something i often do, for various reasons

I want my csv file need to be in classpath,i have added the csv file in the classpath(i.e my resource) package in eclipse...
 
 Here is my piece of code where i was trying to comment  the code and add
String classpath = System.getProperty("\\MID.csv");
is it not the correct way to set the correct path......

and i need to pass the String classpath in the  jobParameterMap
jobParameterMap.put("inputFilePath", new JobParameter(classpath ));


public class AppTest {

	
//	public static final String path = 
  //                "D:\\MyDev\\Consum\\identityy\\MID.csv";    
	
	String classpath = System.getProperty("\\MID.csv"); 
	
	
	@Autowired
    private JobLauncherTestUtils jobLauncherTestUtils;
 
    @Test
    public void launchJob() throws Exception {
		
	Map<String, JobParameter> jobParameterMap = new HashMap<String, JobParameter>();
	jobParameterMap.put("inputFilePath", new JobParameter(path));
	JobParameters jobParameters = new JobParameters(jobParameterMap);
		
}
