I have a properties file located in the root of the war file.

How do I read in that properties file when the servet is deployed?

thanks

That's what ServletContext.getResourceAsStream is for.

You may want to move the file from the web app root into the WEB-INF directory, though, lest it becomes publicly accessible.
