Hi

I have a java application to verify digital signatures . The Generate.java class takes a file (for which signature is to be generated) as command line argument and stores two files in the bin folder , one with the public keyand other with the private key .
The Verify.java class takes 3 command line arguments , the public key file , the private key file , and the file for which signature was generated.

Instead of giving these as command arguments , can i permanently them permanently in the java programs by giving their file path or somethign ?

Any suggestions .. ?

While you can hardcode them in your code, it might not be a good solution.
Alternatives are to look in a file/resource bundle that contains the entries for these files.

You replace the references to the command line arguments with string literals.
