I just come to know that it is unsafe to put your access password etc in your code, after reading the article from Heroku ;

https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/config-vars

However, I am quite confused as to the mechanic of the way it works.

Initially, I thought the Access password should be stored in a properties file but it is wrong or it is ok to do so?

I hope someone can explain to me how to set config in environment.

Tks.

You could use environment variables if you don't want to put passwords into properties files?
