Subject Re: How to specify the location of a properties file.
Date Tue, 08 Oct 2002 12:57:22 GMT
Hi Mehdi,

I have my properties file in /WEB-INF. Eclipse doesn't delete it 
there. I access it with

InputStream propsIn  = servletContext.getResourceAsStream("/WEB-
INF/dms.properties");
props.load(propsIn);

As far as I know this also works when the web-app ist deployed 
as a war without expansion.

Hope that helps.

Andreas
