Persistent Configuration Data - in J2EE

I would like a means to persist configuration data, outside of the EAR file, so that it survives application deployments. Actually, I would love to use a facility like JMX to allow my System administrators to Administer these values per environments, not my developers having access other environments.

Survivable of a clustered Application server = J2EE EAR's Steamed to managed server.

Basically, a persistent configuration store, that is manageable, hopefully through the same Admin console as JDBC Configuration information.

I have come up with a
1. Database Solution ( Have to manage it being up )
2. External property files ( Doesn't travel with a Cluster)
3. Possible LDAP Servers configs (May be different from DEV to QA to Production

So I do not have a good idea.

Can anyone point me in a better path?

Thank you.
