Hello,

I have one sample project named as TMS, In my "WEB-INF/conf" foler contains database.properties file. It contains

e.g
hostname = some host name
url= some url

This project contains only one database.properties file.
In java file, I want to get hostname and url from that property file.

e.g.

Properties props=new Properties () ;
props.load ( new FileInputStream ( new File ("E:\\Workspace\\TMS\\WebRoot\\WEB-INF\\conf\\database.properties"))) ;

String host= "hostname";
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?

Thanking you.

Hi Edward,

You can use the method getServletContext() as follows:

InputStream is = getServletContext().getResourceAsStream ("/WEB-INF/conf/database.properties");
Properties props = new Properties();
props.load(is);
out.println("HOST: " + props.getProperty("host") + " URL: " + props.getProperty("url"));

Hope it helps,

Cheers,

Francois

How about using ResourceBundle?
You just need to know the property file name.
