i'm looking for a pattern to read a custom property file. it seems as if my current design has a principle problems:

- i have a class PropertyReader which reads the file and adds it to the system properties

this code is called from a static initalizer block, a debug log output in the class itself shows that the file is read correctly, all properties can be accessed.

here's my problem when i execute my junit testsuite (from within an ant task):
- the file is read without problems (log output in PropertyReader is correct)
- from within a test, i can access the "normal" system properties (like file.seperator,...)
- but when i access my own properties, it always returns null.

many thanks for any help,
