<import resource= in applicationContext.xml
I would like to put my applicationContext.xml outside of the WEB-INF directory for my Web application so it can easily be updated without having to update or recreate the .war file.
I read somewhere outside of this forum that this should work:
1. Create a new XML file (I called it ReportApplicationContext.xml)
and place it in the desired path (I placed it in c:\context)
2. Modify applicationContext.xml to look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC "-//SPRING//DTD BEAN//EN" "http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd">
However, after having done this, I'm getting java.io.FileNotFoundException: c:\context\ReportApplicationContext.xml (The system cannot find the path specified) eventhough the folder c:\context exists and the xml file exists in that folder.
Is what I'm trying to do possible ?
Thank you so much
