Hai all,
I am trying to read a properties file say from an ejb ReadBean.
i packaged the properties file in to the jar. But when i tried to execute, an exception is being caught (

Properties properties = new Properties();
try {
properties.load(new FileInputStream(""));
} catch (IOException e) {
System.out.println("exception"+ e);
Can any one help me out! If i have to change the path of properties file where i have to put it?

Thanks & Regards
Anuja K.

I normally recommend creating a ResourceBundle from a properties file. However, if you wish to use the Properties class, try the following code which calls the class loader to find the file and return an input stream.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.3, SCBCD 1.3
