Default Read XML Config File From Within EJB JAR


I have an EJB JAR, erptsecejb.jar. Within that jar is a class, MyClass which needs to read an XML file also contained within that same JAR. Here is what the paths within the EJB JAR may look like:


I've tried doing the following:

URL mUrl = MyClass.class.getClassLoader().getResource("com/foo/bar/config/ConfigFile.xml");

URL mUrl = MyClass.class.getClassLoader().getResource("com.fo o.bar.config.ConfigFile.xml");

URL mUrl = MyClass.class.getClassLoader().getResource("Config File.xml");

I also tried added the following to the Manifest file:
Class-Path: com/foo/bar/config

No matter what I do, the class can't find this file. When I perform a mUrl.getPath(), I get a null-pointer exception.

Any suggestions?
