Configuration Bean

Hello together,

I want to create a config bean which I access in my JSPs to read, well, configurations and settings. The source of this bean should be a .properties file which can then easily be modified without rebuilding everything.

My attempt lokked like this:

- take the .properties file and load it with an input stream

- wrap the file contents into a Properties object

- put the Properties object into the JSP session context

- read properties with JSP scriptlets

So far so good. Everything works. But the path to the .properties file varies from an application launch within eclipse and a launch from within mobile engine. When launching from eclipse I have a different root directory where the file is searched for than in mobile engine. Any hints where to configure the working directory in eclipse to be the same as in ME itsself?

Best regards,

    Hi Tim,

    you can please the file inside your application and get the path to it with


    + the subDirs to the file.

    Or - even better - put it into the classpath (in ME into the WEB-INF/classes dir or one of your JARs) and use


    This should do the job. BUT even when you start the ME from eclipse, the path to ME_HOME should be the same, or?

    Best Regards, alex
