this seems like a pretty straight task, but just wanted clarification.

I want to have a properties file outside the app/EAR using WSAD/RAD- that loads during was test server startup and so i can simply swap out a file and restart the server again with different params etc, are these normally just placed in the properties directory (although im using WSAD/RSA6/RAD6 in prd we use only was5.1)

can anyone elaborate?

what exactly do i do?

David,
You can add any external directory you want to the server's classpath. This can be the WSAD server (in the server perspective) or the real server (in the admin console.)

How do you do this in Tomcat 4.1 inside RAD? I would like my web-app use a properties file in an external folder. It is easy to do this on WSAD, but not in RAD.

Jawahar,
In RAD 6, you need to go into the admin console to set this path.
