I am looking for how to use global variables in my web application. I have properties file in database and thus whenever required, we retrieve from database. All properties are alomost readonly. Once in a while they get changed in database. Thus server restart is not a problem when any value gets changed.
Inorder to increase the performance, I am planning to use global variables for all properties which will make properties available through out the application and reduce the database interaction.
I have an idea of using Static class to save the values and access these values. This is a webapplication and exists in Websphere server.
Can anybody give me better ways of solving the problem and any flaws of using static class for this purpose.
