Hi all
When starting a server, normally I need to type: java -Djava.security.policy=fbn.policy XXXXXX.
I just wondering if I can put the fbn.policy into a java file, say fbn.java, so that I can start the server like java XXX?
Thanks for any help.

Hi Peter -
You can assign java.security.policy a value within the server source if you want:
Properties props = System.getProperties();
props.put("java.security.policy", "fbn.policy");
This hard-codes the policy by name, so if you want multiple policies without editing the same file for each use:
props.put("java.security.policy", args[0]);
where arg[0] is a command-line parameter instead of a directive (-D thingy).
