[jdom-interest] DTD location

I have a folder in a netbeans webapp.

/NB-Projects/whatever/app/WEB-INF/fistx/ .

In that folder I have two files.
windsor.xml and its dtd fist.dtd .

windsor.xml starts with these two lines:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE fist SYSTEM "fist.dtd" >

However, SAX builder keeps insisting on wanting to read the fist.dtd
/..../netbeans/tomcat5.5.7/bin .

Is there a way to tell SAX builder to look for the DTD at the directory
where the xml file is being parsed?

Or at any location I wish to specify, 

String fistdtd =

SAXBuilder saxb = new SAXBuilder();


  "http|ftp ://MyFavouriteServer/myFavouriteDTDs/fist.dtd");

I could specify
<!DOCTYPE fist SYSTEM /NB-Projects/whatever/app/WEB-INF/fistx/fist.dtd"

But that would not be very portable, would it?
