I want to make jdbc connection in java object, wants to read some properties file which will be containing detail about db server like sid,port and ip. I used ClassLoader.getResourceAsStream method, if i copy that property file in jdk/lib folder, then it works. If i keep it some where else it won't work? please tell me how this ClassLoader works? regards ravikant
This isn't really relevant to this forum - "JDBC" or "I/O and Streams" would have been better. The ClassLoader method you mention will find any file on the classpath, but I think you are barking up the wrong tree! This class is designed for loading the byte code for java class files. You should use the ResourceBundle class in the java.util package for loading a properties file. James
