    Reading properties file in webapp under JBoss/Tomcat

    bill blackmon Newbie

      Hi,
      I'm trying to read a properties file that is contained in a war file that is deployed under JBoss' Tomcat.

      The specifics follow:

      code to read file is:
      ResourceBundle props = ResourceBundle.getBundle("idmwswrapper.properties", Locale.getDefault(), this.getClass().getClassLoader());

      the properties file is currently located in WEB-INF/classes

      The error message is:
      ERROR READING PROPERTIES FILE.... Can't find bundle for base name idmwswrapper.properties, locale en_US
      2007-08-03 15:09:24,265 INFO [STDOUT] java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find bundle for base name idmwswrapper.properties, locale en_US

      20 etc. etc.

      Where should this file be located relative to the class file that resides
      in:
      WEB-INF/classes.com.company.webservices.idm.wrapper.ClassName ?

      Ideally, I need to place the propertie file OUTSIDE of the classes directory - in config/propetiesfile.properties for instance, but that removes it from the classpath.

      Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
