hi,
i want to store username and password in a properties file and get these
values in a bean class which is having a method to get the connection.
eg
[ public class App{
public Connection getConnection(){
String user= //from properties file
String password= // from properties file
......

}
}
can you tell me the ways to achieve this.

You could either use the Properties.load method to read the file, or use a PropertyResourceBundle.

Isn't a properties file just plain text, like an .ini file? If a password were stored as a property, couldn't someone just open the properties file and see all of the passwords?

The assumption is that either this is a client app (in which case all of the client hard disk is fair game) or this is a server app (in which case none of the clents can access it). Maybe the original poster will tell us which one it is.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
