Property file in EJB: previously called "Thread in Stateless Session Bean"

This spins off from this thread,
Thread in Session Bean
I have a need to access property files from a Stateless Session Bean. What are the best practices to do this. Approaches that I can think of are: -
1. ResourceBundle theResource = ResourceBundle.getBundle("myPropertyFile");
2. JNDI
3. Any other suggestions?
If so, what are the tradeoffs for each of these approaches in terms of performance & scalability?


Thank you.<br /> <br />- Jess Sie<br /> <a href="mailto:jess@see-consulting.com" rel="nofollow">jess@see-consulting.com</a>

A resource is a better bet for storing "large" numbers of objects and/or larger sized objects, since it's strictly file I/O.
My mind is out to lunch on whether JNDI is ALWAYS going to be associated with a network server at the moment, but everything I can think of at the moment looks that way. Given a choice between file I/O and network I/O, use the file unless there's a compelling reason not to - for example sharing frequently-modified data in a cluster. (Then again, THAT's a good use for an EJB itself!).


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
