I have one sample project named as TMS, In my "WEB-INF/conf" foler contains database.properties file. It contains
hostname = some host name
url= some url
This project contains only one database.properties file.
file, I want to get hostname and url from that property file.
Properties props=new Properties () ;
props.load ( new
( new File ("E:\\Workspace\\TMS\\WebRoot\\WEB-INF\\conf\\database.properties"))) ;
String val = props.getProperty ("Host Name Is :"+ host ) ;
Using the above code, I have got both hostname and url.
But my problem is, How to get the current project database.properties file path.
Because in the above path name is hard coded.
So How we get current project database.properties file path?
Thank You<br />Edward

You can use the method getServletContext() as follows:
is = getServletContext().getResourceAsStream ("/WEB-INF/conf/database.properties");
Properties props = new Properties();
out.println("HOST: " + props.getProperty("host") + " URL: " + props.getProperty("url"));
Hope it helps,
