Subject Re: Reading properties file in context.xml
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2016 19:27:17 GMT
Hello Antonio,

That worked. Thanks.

I added to catalina.properties file.

If I have other API keys and such that I would like to store, should I also
store them there, or does it make more sense to simply create a separate
properties file (since they aren't related to Tomcat)?

Thank you.
