Subject Re: How to manage application properties?
Date Sun, 22 Sep 2002 17:54:32 GMT
Attached is a demo.Demo class which utilizes a PropertiesManager 
class.  The PropertiesManager class creates a properties file to keep track 
of properties files, then creates and uses properties files with and 
without defaults.  I use it to demonstrate to students.

You can put anything you like into any scope (page, session, application) 
in an application, so you use property files just like you would with any 
program or application.  There is no reason why you cannot create and use 
classes and objects in struts.
This PropertiesManager is probably too unwieldy, but you can make something 
that fits your own needs.
