Hi all,
I have a problem with this method.
I am running my servlet in install-dir/webpages/WEB-INF/servlets/
and have servlets.properties in install-dir/webpages/WEB-INF/ but
my Servlet doesn't read initialization values. I dont' know why.
I thought I set up all the CLASSPATH and PATH right..
Can you think of anything?

You need to find out what directory is the actual working directory for your servlet. It's not always obvious. Put a debug printout in your servlet to tell you this info. You obtain it using System.getProperty("user.dir"). Then ensure your property file is place in the directory it shows.
Hope this helps
Did Steve tell you that? Fuh - Steve. Just look at this tiny ad:
