I could be missing something here, but have you already considered using the load and store methods of the Properties class? It looks like all you need to do is open the file and call Properties.load() with the InputStream.
Store the jar file and properties file in the same folder and execute the jar file. It will get the current folder, read the properties file and do the needful...... [ January 29, 2005: Message edited by: Vijay Vaddem ]
