Subject How to manage application properties?
Date Sun, 22 Sep 2002 07:07:17 GMT


This is a very "newbie" question I'm sure, so this might not be the appropriate forum.  Maybe
it belongs in the Tomcat forum?  Not sure.

Pretty basic objective.... I just want to be able to put application settings (things like
path names, integer values, etc) in a *.properties file and access those properties from within
my tomcat/struts(1.1) application.  I see quite a bit of talk about,
but it seems like people are only using that to store and retrieve messages.  I'd rather not
mix my messages with my settings.  How do you do it?  I'm aware of the
class.... but I don't really know how to efficiently use it within the application servlet
context (I don't want to reload it with every request)..... and I wouldn't know when to load
it into application scope.....   anyway, you see that I don't have a clue.  I can think of
plenty of ways to do it, but I would like know the most common/accepted method(s).  So any
tips would be much appreciated :)
