hi, i have write a separate class to store the configuration at

but, how i can tell the java vm to use it?

e.g. java testdemo

import java.util.ResourceBundle;

public class Resource {
private static final String BUNDLE_NAME = "config";//$NON-NLS-1$

private static ResourceBundle RESOURCE_BUNDLE = ResourceBundle

yup, that would work if that were indeed the name of the properties file and it were in the root of the classpath.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
