hi,
i want to store username and password in a properties file and get these
values in a bean class which is having a method to get the connection.
eg
[ public class App{
public Connection getConnection(){
String user= //from properties file
String password= // from properties file
......

}
}
can you tell me the ways to achieve this.

You could either use the Properties.load method to read the file, or use a PropertyResourceBundle.

Not an advanced question. Moving...

Isn't a properties file just plain text, like an .ini file? If a password were stored as a property, couldn't someone just open the properties file and see all of the passwords?

The assumption is that either this is a client app (in which case all of the client hard disk is fair game) or this is a server app (in which case none of the clents can access it). Maybe the original poster will tell us which one it is.
