Is there anyway that I can load a props file and then make changes to props while maintaining the comments associated with the key value pairs? So when I change a property, I can rewrite the props file and have it look the same with comments just new key-value pairs. The comments are quite extensive.
Not sure that I understand the question. Can you show us an example of how you want your properties file to look?

Sure.. #here I would like tohave explanatory comments #that are a few lines long. option1=something #Some more explanatory comments here to deal # with the next property option2=something Something along those lines. I bleieve there is a method to print out a string associated with a property. I would like to somehow read in the comments and the key-value pairs then change values or possibly add new ones and retain the original comments. Thanks, Ronald Whalen
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
