    best way to read in properties ?

      HI

      I read in a book that using Java IO and directly reading in a properties file is not good in case of EJBs or any web application that is supposed to be portable. So, If I have to use classloader, which of the following is a better option.

      1. in = ClassLoader.getSystemResourceAsStream("properties.properties");

      2. in = this.getClass().getClassLoader().getSystemResourceAsStream("properties.properties");

      3. in = Thread.currentThread.getClass().getClassLoader().getSystemResourceAsStream("properties.properties");

      will these work if I have my properties file in the jar file that is deployed to server.
