    Put your XML file in the resource folder src/mimes/Components/<component> and use


    to get the resource path.

      Hi Michael,

      no, it's not a bug, the reason is, how you make the call. Since you concat wdComponentAPI.getDeployableObjectPart() + File.separator + "myfile.xml", you really call WDUrlGenerator.getResourcePath(String), which results in ".\temp\webdynpro\web\<objectName>". <objectName> is the fully qualified name of the deployable object part appended with the file in your call.

      Please use the following instead:

      try {
        String url = WDURLGenerator.getResourcePath(
      } catch (WDAliasResolvingException e) {
          e.getMessage(), true

      Hope that helps.

      Best regards
