Hi

I need to use a properties file to replace variables in a Java program and a servlet.

Eg. of Java program:
****************************************************

****************************************************
The servlet:

********************************************************************
I want to put the stuff between @xyz@ in the above programs in a properties file and access them - how do i do it?

I want to stuff @xyz@ in the servlet to come from a init-param of the servlet defined in web.xml .

Question:
Where should I put the properties file ?
How do i access it(the variavles in the properties file) from java program?
Do i need to put the properties file in the classpath?

Thanks
Kawa

Third item on the page. It should answer all of your questions.

Here's a pointer for you: SimpleDateFormat isn't thread safe! It should be but is not.

Don't make it a static final, create a new one each time you need it, or as a method variable (NOT an instance variable, this is a servlet we're talking about).

Just be glad you're not learning this the hard way!
