I am trying to externalize the properties outside of a war file as this is an absolute necessity for our application. I found a way in the Spring forum as described below, but that doesn't seem to be working. Can you please let me know how to externalize properties outside of the war file and still refer to those properties in web.xml, applicationContext.xml and XXX-servlet.xml? Thanks in advance for any help or pointers.
