Hello All,

New to the list. I would like to pass a path to a pipeline file that is 
within a jar, like this:

file:/Users/sbrayman/.m2/repository/com/rackspace/cloud/api/clouddocs-maven-plugin/1.0.9-SNAPSHOT/clouddocs-maven-plugin-1.0.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/test.xpl 


Which is generated by:

String pathToPipelineFile = 
this.getClass().getResource("/test.xpl").getPath().toString();

However, I get a file not found exception. If I pass a path outside of 
the jar it works fine, like the following:

/Users/sbrayman/Documents/workspace/rc-maven-cloud-docs/src/main/resources/test.xpl 


Just to be sure I also tried:

file:///Users/sbrayman/.m2/repository/com/rackspace/cloud/api/clouddocs-maven-plugin/1.0.9-SNAPSHOT/clouddocs-maven-plugin-1.0.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/test.xpl 


file://Users/sbrayman/.m2/repository/com/rackspace/cloud/api/clouddocs-maven-plugin/1.0.9-SNAPSHOT/clouddocs-maven-plugin-1.0.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/test.xpl 


file:Users/sbrayman/.m2/repository/com/rackspace/cloud/api/clouddocs-maven-plugin/1.0.9-SNAPSHOT/clouddocs-maven-plugin-1.0.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/test.xpl 


/Users/sbrayman/.m2/repository/com/rackspace/cloud/api/clouddocs-maven-plugin/1.0.9-SNAPSHOT/clouddocs-maven-plugin-1.0.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/test.xpl 


Users/sbrayman/.m2/repository/com/rackspace/cloud/api/clouddocs-maven-plugin/1.0.9-SNAPSHOT/clouddocs-maven-plugin-1.0.9-SNAPSHOT.jar!/test.xpl 



I was wondering if a path that references a file inside a jar is 
supported?  Here is the full stack trace http://pastebin.com/hTM6N37U.  
I am hoping someone has run into this before


Thanks much,

Seth Brayman
