The file abc.properties needs to be in the directory ./mn/op (full file name of ./mn/op/abc.properties). This can be either in your myclass.jar file, or in the WEB-INF/classes directory in your war file.
Note that properties files are looked up like class files, and that mn.op is considered to be the package name.
Thanks for the response.
How do you tell the application to look for it? When I run it from command line or eclipse I ask it to look for it with my -D argument. But when you deploy it on JBoss how do you supply these VM arguments.
Thanks again for any suggestions.
Try setting JAVA_OPTS before running run.bat or run.sh. Example: JAVA_OPTS=-Dngp.mn.op.abc.filename=mn.op.abc.properties
