hello all I have a problem when deploying a war file into Java Web Start. The war file consists of several jar files, and one of the jar files contanins several *.properties files(such as system.properties). I attempt to find the properties file by the following code: InputStream is = this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("/system.properties"); Properties prop = new Properties(); prop.load(is); String initCtxFactory = prop.getProperty("myproperties"); but it fails to find the properties file. Can anyone provide me with the solution to this problem? Thanks in advance!
