Hi,
We have a requirement of reading a properties file ( which would be placed outside the .war ) and then populate the drop-down list.
Need some insight on how can we read the properties file in client code?

Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks
Sapna

Client side java code is going to be translated into pure http/javascript code, so it cannot read property files. However, one can use GWT-RPC mechanism to let a servlet read a properties file and send it to client as HashMap/Hashtable object to client side.

Thanks Prabakar,
I have read it from servlet using the GWT-RPC mechanism.
