Dear Ranchers,
I'm doing a project in JSP and MySQL. For the JSP-MySQL connection , I'm now writing the connection statments in each and every time when I want to insert,delete, update of select the database queries. If I change the MySQL root password, it will affect the coding completely.. So Instead of that I want to put properties file to store the

MySQL database

Please help me by sending some links where I can read and master about Properties file.

I think the Java in General (beginner) is more appropriate for questions on the use of property files.
