Subject Tomcat and Input-Output streams
Date Sat, 01 Sep 2001 23:16:59 GMT
Hello again:

Searching a little bit more I've founded the solution to my problem.
Relying reading of the properties file to a PropertiesManager class with a
method like:

    static {
        try {
            Class propertiesManagerClass = PropertiesManager.class;
            ClassLoader classLoader =
propertiesManagerClass.getClassLoader();
            InputStream inputStream =
                classLoader.getResourceAsStream(PROPERTIES_FILE);

            properties = new Properties();
            properties.load(inputStream);
            inputStream.close();
        } catch (Exception e) {
            System.err.println("Error loading properties from file "
                               + PROPERTIES_FILE + ": "+ e);
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }

everything works fine.  My question now is, why?  and, where can I get some
information about Tomcat and the IO files?  I realized that Tomcat writes
my database log file to "/etc/init.d/"  (where the tomcat startup script
is)  I guess that with my previos implementation Tomcat searched for the
"bd.properties" file in that same directory.  Why Tomcat behaves like
this?  How can I control the exact location of my IO files?

Thanks a lot,

        Quique
