Hello there,

i was wondering how i can put the filepath to a property file in my program. I have a class Main with a main methode which uses a path to my property file. I also have a .bat file which calls this main methode. But this .bat file is in a folder in the java project. Therefore the .bat expect a differnt path (with prefix "../") to the property file.

how can i make my main methode runnable for both the .bat and the main it self.

thank you in advance
