Hi,
I have a requirement where i need to read a set a value to a custom tag property by reading its value from a .properties file. When i read the value and display, it works fine, but when i assign it to custom tag property it gives me error.
Here is the code for application.properties file:
# For Sample Database
SampleDBName = genSQLServer
SampleDBUrl = jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://SampleDB;DatabaseName=Sample
SampleDBUserName = prakash
SampleDBPassword = prakash123

JSP code:
<% Properties p = new Properties(); %>
<% p.load(new FileInputStream(new File("C:\\tomcat\\webapps\\sampleapplication
application.properties"))); %>

<SampleApplication:useSQLDataSource
name = "genSQLServer"
driver = "com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver"
url = "<%=p.getProperty("SampleDBUrl ") %>"
username = �<%=p.getProperty("SampleDBUserName ") %>�
password = �<%=p.getProperty("SampleDBPassword ") %>�
remove = "true"/>

When i use the above code it throws an Exception "No suitable driver".
But when i use the following code it works fine:
<SampleApplication:useSQLDataSource
name = "genSQLServer"
driver = "com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver"
url = "jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://SampleDB;DatabaseName=Sample"
username = "prakash"
password = "prakash123"
remove = "true"/>

And more over when i print the "SampleDBUrl " property value in the JSP using <%=p.getProperty("SampleDBUrl ") %>, it print the correct value, only problem occurs is when i assign it in the custom tag property.

Please help me in resolving this issue.

Thanks and Regards.

You've got funny double quotes in your first example, after username and password. Is this a typo ?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
