Subject Re: How to specify the location of a properties file.

I have written my properties loading like this and I found once that it
loaded from the classes directory.  I guess the question I have is why it
defaults to the classes directory and how could I set to something like a
conf directory below my main webapp root directory.

The other thing is I now can't read the properties file from my classes
directory for some reason.  I have been playing around with my Tomcat
configuration. Is there anything in there you need to do to specify where to
pick up files from that I could have changed?

Thanks in advance.

Shaun
