Assign Config Properties from OutSide of the War File

Hi all,
My requirement is that i want to have all the properties specific to environment(Prod, Dev,QA) go into a seperate file outside my war,for Example the properties like DB Name, DB Password, LDAP URL, LDAP Pwd, Hibernate_Dialect..etc.

Is there a way to create just one war file for three environments and some how read these properties from outside of war file?


This way I don’t need to repackage the war file when moving it from one environment to another Or if the Prod guys doesn't want to share the details to the dev Team.

FYI : Application is based on Struts2(For MVC) + Spring(For Injection) + Hibernate (ORM) + Acegi(Authentication)

Would Appreciate your thoughts on this .

Thank you
