i need to find a replacement for the *.property file.
because, if we update a property file, we need to restart the server. So, i need to find a method, where i can change the property values without restarting the server.
I am using java 1.4 and the server is web sphere.
need help from you all!

If the property file is contained within an web application (assuming this, since you are running websphere), it should be reloaded when one redeploys a web application. No server restart necessary. I'll move this topic to the websphere forum to make sure.
I maintain a web app that was written before the age of hot-redeploy and it spawns a thread that watches a collection of resources for changes. When a change is detected it reloads the resource. I'm not sure if that is the current solution to avoid a redeploy to update resources.
