I am developing a program using glade + gtk through quickly, ubuntu 12.04. If a want to include a file .xml, where I have to create this file? Is there any default folder for that?

at the end when I deploy the app, do I have to put any extra setting anywhere?

its a bit confusing, I have java background, and in java you include everything on the root folder of the app and the code can read the files, but not sure in here.
