How to load a resource and use it's content?

Hey all together,

1.: I want to include a .txt (which has only names inside) file to my plugin resources.
2.: Then I want to use the content of this file to fill a table in a .vm (velocity template).
3.: Also I need to get the content in an file.

I tried it myself, but none of this works. I suppose it's because of an wrong path.
This is what I've done:


<atlassian-plugin key="${atlassian.plugin.key}" name="${}" plugins-version="2"> 
<param name="plugin-icon">images/pluginIcon.png</param>
<param name="plugin-logo">images/pluginLogo.png</param>

<!-- add our i18n resource -->
<resource type="i18n" name="i18n" location="VersionManager"/>
<!-- add our web resources -->
<web-resource key="VersionManager-resources" name="VersionManager Web Resources">
<resource type="download" name="VersionManager.css" location="css/VersionManager.css"/>
<resource type="download" name="VersionManager.js" location="js/VersionManager.js"/>
<resource type="download" name="images/" location="/images"/>
<resource type="download" name="projects" location="projectsData/projects.txt"/>
<resource type="download" name="date-picker" location="com.atlassian.auiplugin:aui-date-picker"/>



<!-- Add package to export here -->
<!-- Add package import here -->
<Import-Package>org.springframework.osgi.*;resolution:="optional", org.eclipse.gemini.blueprint.*;resolution:="optional", *</Import-Package>
<!-- Ensure plugin is spring powered -->



set (projectText = $projects)
<p id="projectsText"></p>

public void loadProjects() {

InputStream test1 = com.atlassian.core.util.ClassLoaderUtils.getResourceAsStream("org.springframework.osgi:projects", this.getClass());
URL test2 = getClass().getResource("projects");
