Hi,
How can use (access) the system variable's (like path,userprofile, windir, etc)values in my project's .properties file. I want to locate all my project related directories relative to these variables in my project's properties file.

Hi Balasubramanian Chandrasekaran:
already i worked with all these. what i want is:
- i will store my .properties file in user.home
- this above .properties file should have entries to refer system variable's values like:
videofolder=%user.home%\video\;
audiofolder=%user.dir%\audio\;
- ie from my own .properties file i want to access/refer system variables
- How can i do this, syntax, sample, please!!

Thanks for your fast reply

hi all,
Inside a .properties file, accessing any location relatively like audio_dir=%userprofile%\audio, video_dir=%user.dir%\video,etc does not work.

But, inside the .properties file, we can specify like audio_dir=dir1\audio, video_dir=dir1\video, etc instead of using absolute (complete) path.
Automatically OS will check for these folders in Current Working Directory (CWD)

i.e. audio_dir=dir1\audio is equal to audio_dir=<CWD>\dir1\audio
