I am new to resource bundle. i have created a class file to connect to mysql by getting the connection string form property file, but the error displayed is
Exception in getConnection java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find bundle for base name, locale en_US

The source of "" is

package webbean;
import com.mysql.jdbc.Driver;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.MissingResourceException;
import java.util.ResourceBundle;
import javax.servlet.*;
import java.sql.*;

public class connect_detail

public connect_detail()

private java.sql.Connection conn = null;

private static final String PROP_FILE = "";

public java.sql.Connection getConnection()
ResourceBundle bundle = ResourceBundle.getBundle(PROP_FILE);
System.out.println("db url:"+bundle.getString("urldata"));

if(conn == null)
System.out.println("Inside the getConnection() failure - conn is null");
System.out.println("Inside the getConnection() sucesss");
catch(Exception e)
System.out.println("Exception in getConnection() " + e);
return conn;

And the "" file is

#Database Connection

urldata = jdbc:mysql:/localhost/ems?user=root&password=root

Please help me to solve this problem

The bundle name should not include the ".properties" extension - it gets appended automatically.
I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
