Hello All,

I am using below code to read the properties files that are on the classpath,


What I want is that at runtime I may have various jars attached and each jar might have this property file. So with above code I want to read all properties files available and make a combined configuration.

Now this code was working well for the simple java project. But it does not work for a web application (deployed on WebSphere). I guess the reason is that in the case of web applications multiple class loaders might be involved.

What do I do so that my code will read all properties files. Is there any project that is already doing this, for example Commons Configuration?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
