System Property in web.xml

Hi all,

Is it possible to use a system property as parameter to a filter config in web.xml? The system property holds environment (dev/int/prod) specific value and prefer that this defined at the container level. That way I could get an EAR deployed to any environment without having to change any setting at deploy time. I tried using the ${} notation in web.xml and that doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks.
I agree. Here's the link:
