Hi all. I have a question regarding persisting properties I want to load into my class when it is constructed, and the options I have available to me to do this. Basically, when my class is constructed I want to load a property for it to use. As far as I know, I can do this either using -D in the Java command, or loading the property from a text file. However, where does the runtime find the file (using a property to find a property?! ). Could someone tell me how best to handle this situation please (ie what is convention)?? Personally, I would've thought that there would be a Windows registry type object that you could use to set properties... dUNC
