Looking for Suggetions

hi all

i want one small suggestions from you all.

in our projects we had nearly 50 forms(jsps)

Each form has a list box of 15 colors which was going to be choosen by user,presently we had hardcoded list of 15 colors in each jsp.we have also provided option to the user to edit the color.Color choosen by the user vary from one jsp to another

We have idea to move to properties file.

If we move to properties file,whenever a user is editing the form,we should provide him a value which was altready choosen by him???(which also vary from one jsp to another)

how to implement in a best way??

Looking for replies......???

I'd recommend storing this in a database keyed on user ID rather than in a properties file. It's a lot cleaner that way.
