 static URL?

 Do you mean that getSystemResource() is a static method in
ClassLoader? That's true, but you're allowed to call non-static
methods on other objects inside a static method. In fact,
getSystemResource() just gets the system classloader with
getSystemClassLoader() and calls getResource() on it.

 Where are you calling the static methods from? From the init()
of a servlet? If so, you can get the servlet's classloader and
pass it to the static method.
