Hi all, We are currently deploying war files at our customer's production sites, but we would like to give our customer's to update certain properties files that are contained within each web application (war file) for minor text or presentation preferences, such as alert text, prompts, etc... My initial thought is to develop a simple script to extract the properties file, update the value of the correct property and then add the changed file back into the war file. However, this seems like it might be a common problem and i was wondering if anyone had a more elegant way of doing this. Thanks in advance for any input or ideas. -MLA
