Can anyone tell me how to create an initialization file for java. when i googled the thing i saw API to do it. [ini4j] Can anyone tell me what are the essential things i need to know to create .ini file? I am using netbeans IDE. Is there any functions in Netbeans that helps us to create ini file?
Depending on what you need the initialization mechanism to do you could use the Properties API, the Preferences API, the third party library you suggested or some sort of custom implementation. Could you provide us with more details / requirements?

The ini file will set preference to do some calculation. It will set the unit conversion to values It should be able to change location of a mdb file i am creating in the program.
In short, it should be able to set some global variables i have defined.
Well, yes, but are these initialization settings supposed to be application global or user specific, does simple key/value pair storage match the expected complexity of the settings you wish to store? Those kinds of details can determine the suitablility of one approach over the other. [ May 08, 2008: Message edited by: Jelle Klap ]
