HI,
i am new to jsp. can anyone tell me how to create a property file for a jsp page and retrieve data from that.

the scenario is i have path in my JSP page:in that am referring to a file using following URL.
String filename = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\hittal n\\Desktop\\Orchestrator\active.xls
i have to put this URL in property file and i have to read to from property file...the path should be absolute path in JSP.

This is not something that should be done in the JSP, but in a servlet controller or other Java class.

In fact, if the value is unlikely to change over the span of the application, you could read the properties file in a context listener and place the value as a scoped variable in application scope. It would then always be available when needed.

Also, please avoid the over-use of bold in your posts. It just makes them hard to read

Load this url, which is dynamic data when your application starts up. Use a servlet context listener. Use a context param like Le Bear suggests. JSPs are meant to display the page alone and should ideally not contain any other logic.
