Here is my situation:  I'm using JBoss 6 and when I try and deploy my war, the war explodes and is stored in the Virtual File System. I have code thay when the application starts up, it tries to read an xml file in the the WEB-INF directory. I'm getting the following runtime exception:
ERROR [org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[jboss.web].[localhost].[/].[ActionServlet]] Servlet.service() for servlet ActionServlet threw exception: 

java.lang.RuntimeException  C:\jboss-6.0.0\server\default\deploy\test.war\WEB-INF\classes\security.xml (The system cannot find the path specified)

Now if I just explode the war manually and drop the contents in the deploy directory, the application works perfectly.

So I think what i need to do, is some how figure out how to access the file in the VFS.

Currently this is the code that i'm calling to return the path:
ClassLoader loader = Thread.+currentThread+().getContextClassLoader();
URL url = loader.getResource(*this*.filename);
String path = url.getPath();
repos = *new*  File(path);


Any Ideas on how I can find out how to get the virtual path?

Could it be a configuration issue?
