Hi All,

I want some thing like below:

Ankit,
Most people store these in a property file rather than a database.

If you do want to use a database, have you read anything about JDBC yet?

As Jeanne mentioned, I'd use a properties file, and the <fmt:message> tag, like 99.999999% of everyone else out there.

If you insist on using a database (why?), I'd fetch the values in the page controller to pass to the JSP as a Map and use the EL from there. But I'd only do that if I had a really, really, really, really good reason to use a database over the more conventional properties files.

Hi Thank you both of you for the resolution. I was thinking about the database, so that if I have to make any change I can directly change in the database. But there will be an additional overhead of data fetching.
Yes Jeanne I am aware of JDBC.

I was unaware of <fmt:message> tag. Thank you both of you for guidance
