[jdom-interest] How to read a DTD as a resource file?

Hi all

I need to pack my DTD inside my application and parse a XML file validating
against this DTD.

The following code works fine with JDOM:

   InputStream xmlIS = App.class.getResourceAsStream(xmlFileName);
   // Build the JDOM Document
   doc = builder.build(xmlIS, dtdURL.toString());

this is OK if the DTD is an external file, but what do I need to do if the DTD
is packed inside my applications jar file. The AElfred parser for example allows
somthing like this:

InputStream xmlIS = Appl.class.getResourceAsStream(xmlFileName);
InputStream dtdIS = Appl.class.getResourceAsStream(dtdFileName);
InputStreamReader xmlStream = new InputStreamReader(is);
parser.parse( dtdIS, null, xmlIS);

Any help would be appreciated.
