 You can put your file where you want. For example if you put it under WWW
 you can load it with:

 File myfile = new File( getServer().getRootDirectory(), 
                         "WWW/"+myfilename );
 ...

 But it's not a good idea to put it there, this directory is supposed to
 contains exported resources. So the best thing to do is to create your 
 own directory under the root directory (ie: myconfig) and to load your
 file with:

 File myfile = new File( getServer().getRootDirectory(), 
                         "myconfig/"+myfilename ); 

 ...

 There'is no difference between 2.0 and 1.0 for this kind of things.
