    Best way to store property strings

    John Bailo Master

      I have a set of key strings that I use in a java bean, called by my jsp pages.

       

      I want these keys to reside in text so they can be changed without recompiling.

       

      However, they will rarely change.

       

      I thought about putting them in a properties file that would be read by my bean.

       

      However, I didn't think the properties file should be reloaded with each and every user.

       

      Is there any globally accessible resource that is loaded once on startup where I could put these properties?

       

      Should I use web.xml?   Would a bean in an external package be able to access web.xml?
