ServletContext.getResourceAsStream() in WAS5 and WAS6

P: 58
Hi All,

I am facing a strange issue. I am migrating my application EAR from WAS5 to WAS6. This EAR works perfectly fine in WAS 5 but while the same EAR is deployed in WAS 6, it throwing an exception at the below line (in bold) of code:

String fileName =
ctx.getInitParameter("Webapp.properties");

try {
java.io.InputStream is =
ctx.getResourceAsStream(fileName);
}


The fileName is calculated as null (both in WAS5 and 6) but was5 executes fine the code line in bold while was6 throws null pointer exception.

Please note "ctx" above is the servletcontext instance.

TIA
