Hi guys,

In my startup manger class I'm loading some important information in which I would like to use later.

Say I have just loaded some information from a file "fileInformation"
and I would like to access this information in the application.

I did this:


How can I refer to the fileInfo when I'm in a different class?
say:



obviously, i don't have access to the servletContext?

anyone?

You'd handle this just as you would in any other Java application. When one object has info that another object needs, the data needs to be passed to the other object.

ok, so one way to do that is to pass it to a static class (maybe build a HashMap and store it) but I wonder if there's any way to access the servletContext?

thanks

You could pass a reference to the context in the PokerFacade constructor, or add a setter for it.

Then you cannot access the object bound to servletContext
