I wanted to know how do I externalize properties in web.xml? For example, if I wanted to set a login URL or a server name of sorts in the web.xml, is there a way that I could externalize that in a properties file? Please let me know.
I wanted to know if it was possible to substitute values in the web.xml as variables in a properties file. For example, if I had a property in the web.xml that has the value http://localhost:7001/blah then I want that value to be read from a properties file and not hardcoded in the web.xml when building. I believe that it could be done using Maven. I am looking into it now.
