i have a ehcache.xml file in resources/META-Inf folder, how can i reference this file programmatically?

i tried CacheManager.create("classpath:META-INF/ehcache.xml");
CacheManager.create("META-INF/ehcache.xml");
CacheManager.create("/META-INF/ehcache.xml");

nothing but the full path (hardcoded) works. thanks.

You have to add resources folder inside Source Tab of Java Build Path of your project.

Related to ehcache You may refere code samples from http://ehcache.org/documentation/code-samples

Some good recipes at http://ehcache.org/documentation/2.4/recipes/

Just to elaborate on why it isn't working, the method that you are using, ie. CacheManager.create(String), passes that string to a java.io.File constructor which means that it attempts to find the file in the filesystem. This is why the full path works, and also a relative path would work as long as you know the current working directory when your program is executed. A better solution probably would be to load the file from the classpath (which it looks like what you were trying to do). So assuming that the META-INF folder is being included in your classpath, you can use the following to load it from there...
URL configUrl = getClass().getResource("/META-INF/ehcache.xml");
CacheManager cm = CacheManager.create(configUrl);
