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 [ June 17, 2008: Message edited by: seetharaman jayaraman ]
