I would like to know what kind of practices other developers use for building different environments like, development, certification and production. Currently I adopt using different directories under config consisting of sub directories dev, cert and prod consisting of environment related config files. Is there any better approach that I can use. If possible, please include a sample.

who says you can't go overseas for healthcare?
Health insurance companies here have been doing it in emergencies and are starting to do it ever more as healthcare in this country is breaking down (less capacity, higher cost and higher demand).
It's coming to the point where it's cheaper to send someone from Amsterdam to Madrid for 2 weeks for surgery now than to have him/her on a waiting list for 2 years

Java already has finalizers, what's wrong with them (besides the fact they I hardly ever see situations where they are needed)? I hope you are not suggesting that Java should allow explicit memory management...
BTW, why do you feel destructors help design?

The first one is about the distributable flag within the web.xml deployment descriptor. Is there a more detailed description when we can set this flag to distributable as in the servlet spec?
What's New in Java Servlet API 2.2?
By Jason Hunter; Reprinted from JavaWorld
A few clarifications were also made in 2.2 with regards to distributed applications, in which application components can be spread across multiple back-end server machines.
The specification dictates that, for an application marked as distributable in its deployment descriptor, there will be a single ServletContext instance per JVM. This means the context attributes cannot be used to share global information. Global information in a distributed app needs to be stored externally from the Web server, as is the case in database or EJB component.
