JBoss External Properties Files in Classpath

I was going through JBoss.org how to put external file in the classpath, but it doesn't work.

I have 1 file with name "config.properties". It is placed in jboss/modules/com/xsiraul/test/main/ folder. In the same folder there is module.xml which looks like -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <module xmlns="urn:jboss:module:1.1" name="com.xsiraul.test"> <resources> <resource-root path="."/> </resources> </module>

I have load config.properties file from Java using -

InputStream settingsStream = getClass().getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream("config.properties");

Java class is in package named com.xsiraul.test

The problem is that method getResourceAsStream returns NULL and I don't understand why. Maybe somebody has any ideas?

I use JBoss EAP 6.1.0.GA version.


<ol> <li>

Copy your 'config.properties' and 'module.xml' in the following directory:

<JBOSS-6.1-ROOT>/modules/system/layers/base/com/fico/test/main </li> <li>

Extend '/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml' by the following sub-system:

<subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:ee:1.1"> <global-modules> <module name="com.fico.test" slot="main"/> </global-modules> <spec-descriptor-property-replacement>false</spec-descriptor-property-replacement> <jboss-descriptor-property-replacement>true</jboss-descriptor-property-replacement> </subsystem> </li> <li>

Restart JBoss

</li> </ol>


Did you declare the dependency to your module? maybe you missed that..
