Writing properties to same properties file .

All,

I have successfully read my db.properties file
which is located in my WEB-INF directory.
The code I used to accomplish this is the following:


Now, the problem:

If I wish to write the modified properties back to that file that
I just loaded, how do I do that?

Thanks

and keep in mind that this will always replace the entire file, wiping out whatever comments you may have placed in it.

After looking at your example and my code that was attempting
to save the properties, I am exactly doing what you proposed.

I say: (with the filePath being "/db.properties")



I print the absolute path of the file I am using for the output stream,
and it seems to be trying to find the jakarta-tomcat/bin directory.
Can anyone explain this to me, plus a working solution?

Thanks

P.S.

Also, if I change the file path to "db.properties", then I
get a FileNotFoundException......

Not a problem now, but I will
start a new topic for my new problem.
