hi all i have a servlet which will connect to Database and fetches some DATA.i have a dbconnection.properties which will have the connection string ,query,and.....the problem is the servlet is not able to read the properties file.actually where we can place the properties file.at present i have this servlet in project root directory. PS: when i put this properties file in WEB-INF\Classes its working. but that is not a right way to do it. Help ME, thanks and regards Saratahy
Translation: u = you pl = please y = why clasess = classes Please reduce the use of contractions. When you combine accidental spelling and grammar mistakes with people from around the world who may not have English as their primary language, contractions just make posts harder to understand and should be avoided. The point is well made though: if it works, why is WEB-INF/classes the wrong place for the properties file?

Thank You (thanx ) David, I will keep This In mind. cheers Praful
so in this case the name of the properties file should be PropConfig.properties and in my case it is in the conf directory of the root of your application. and it is not wrong to put the properties file in classes directory.. only thing is that putting it in seperate directory makes it more viewable and seperates the code files from different files as we keep our HTML file, JSP files, and image files in different folder though it is not wrong to keep them together. i hope i have answered correctly. if doubt please revert back Thanks Amit
