I'm developing an application whose business tier is accessed through some EJBs, that uses some non EJB classes to help them to acomplish their tasks. I would like to initialize those non EJB classes at server startup. Someone knows how can I do that?
Another questions is: some of this classes are customizable through configuration files. I would like to inform the location of these files through some system variable or something like that, so I can change it without need of recompile and redeploy my application. Someone have some tip on that?
