Hi,
I need to save some temp files in a temporary location during run time. And i don't want that temp location to hard code in my servlet. So what is the best place to document this temp location.
I thought of having this location documented in a properties file. the content of the property would be something like:
temploc=C:/projects/server/tomcat-5.5.20/webapps/MyApp/Temp

but i couldn't read this properties file in my servlet code using relative path or something.

either let me know a way to read this properties file in my servlet code using relative path or tell me an alternate to document this location.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
