I have a property file stored somewhere on disk say c:\tmp\ This property file contains name value strings e.g
version=6.0 etc.. I need to access this file from JSF page and access the values of the given names(key's).This property file is not localized. I can not use <f:loadbundle basename....> because basename only loads the file which are in the web application context, that is basename point to property file under WEB-INF/classes only, but my property file is outside application context and infact it is under c:\tmp. Is there any easier way to access this file and access its contents as name/value pairs.

Help Appreciated.

i think you can use core java api for accesing the property file. try to access the property file within the constructor of the bean and than try to set the values of the components.

But why do you want to put the it outside the application context does it have any advantage.
