I can find a file that is at the root folder using the folliwng methods

IConfiguration iconfig = (IConfiguration) workspace.configuration(component);
IFolderHandle root = iconfig.rootFolderHandle(MONITOR);
IVersionableHandle filePathHandle = iconfig.resolvePath(root,fileName, MONITOR);

How do I find the file if it is not at the root folder level??

there should be a simpler way.......

public IVersionableHandle findfile(IFolderHandle root,IConfiguration iconfig,String fileName)
throws TeamRepositoryException {
String fileNamePath[] = {fileName};
IVersionableHandle filePathHandle = null;

// Check if file at this folder level
filePathHandle = iconfig.resolvePath(root,fileNamePath, MONITOR);
if (filePathHandle != null) {
return filePathHandle;

// Check this file sub folders
Map<String> childEntries = iconfig.childEntries(root,MONITOR);
for(Map.Entry<String> next : childEntries.entrySet()) {
IVersionableHandle nextVersionable = next.getValue();
if (nextVersionable instanceof IFolderHandle) {
filePathHandle = findfile((IFolderHandle) nextVersionable,iconfig,fileName);

if (filePathHandle != null) {
return filePathHandle;
