problem with .properties file

Hi All,

I am facing a problem with a value from application.properties file.
My project is in spring. I have a .jspf file where I get the key value from application.properties file. Infact the value I have assigned to key is larger. Like



Value of the property may not be meaningful to you. I have such large value in it. I have some special characters in the value. I use these special character to split the value into different parts and assign it to different variables to use.


Problem is , when i have my web page open for long time(more than one or two hours ),then I am not seeing this property value on my form. I see blank in that place. But when i restart the server or redeploy the application then i will get this value.

Can anyone tell me whats wrong with this process?

Thanks

Edited for line length--the line break in the property file is not there in the actual file.

Does your application reads the .properties file everytime when your application needs to get a value? Or, does it fetches the values once, and stores them on the application scope to be used later?

I have this file loaded two times from applicationContext.xml

2.

I am loading the same properties file second time as resourceBundle to access the keys from JSP pages. With the first configuration i am not able to read the keys from JSP page. I have both the configurations in applicationContext.xml

Problem seems related to some Springy stuff - moving this to the Spring forum.
