Hi all,

I have an application in which i establish connection with database using jdbc. My problem is that whenever the database server's ip address gets changed, i have to go into the code and change the ip address. Is there any solution so that i can mention the ip address outside the code like in xml or something?

You can save the Db URI detail in either a .xml or .properties file and fetch it. That would make it more on the lines of 'configurable'. You will have to handle caching issues after modifying the value.

If it is a web application then you can use datasource managed by your application server.
