Adding config files in classpath

  • Michael Scott

    Michael Scott - 2008-10-24

    I have a problem where when my application launches, it needs to access a hibernate configuration file (and associated dtd file) via the classpath. I have added the "root" folder of the application, from which the relative path to the config file should be accessible. However, when I try to launch via Marathon, the dtd is not found.


    Application is located at C:/MyApp

    config file is located at C:/MyApp/com/MyCompany/hibernate/hibernate.cfg.xml

    dtd is located at C:/MyApp/com/MyCompany/hibernate/hibernate-configuration-3.0.dtd

    I added the folder C:/MyApp (which is also the working directory) to the classpath, but when I try to launch, I get Hibernate exceptions about not being able to parse the dtd file:

    Caused by: org.dom4j.DocumentException: Error on line 4 of document  : Relative URI "com/MyCompany/hibernate/hibernate-configuration-3.0.dtd"; can not be resolved without a document URI.

    Is this a problem with the way I am specifying the classpath (works on when launching normally), a problem with the way I am specifying the location of the dtd file, or something else? Has anyone run into this kind of thing before?

    For confidentiality reasons, the paths above are obviously artificial, and I cannot publish the contents of the xml or dtd files, but hopefully this gives an idea of what the problem is.
