Subject Re: [Configuration] load config files from ddifferent jars
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2004 18:27:31 GMT
ConfigurationFactory should work with both relative and absolute file 
names (at least this is the theory ;-) You should also be able to pass 
in a complete URL.

Which operating system are you working on? If it is Unix/Linux, your 
configuration file shouldn't make problems (unless there is a bug in the 
methods for loading the configurations). Under Windows you will have to 
provide a filename like C:\mydir\ You can also 
try to specify a file:/ URL pointing to your properties file.

Hope this helps!
