Take a look at this page: http://my.ispchannel.com/~flee/software/index.html. You will find there the source for an EnvProperties class which I think will suit your needs.

HI,
You can define environment variables and in the java program you can access the value also.
Do like this:
First set environment variable
like this
set DMV_HOME=jdbc:odbc:mysource
And then in the prorgam you can the value of this environment variable like this
String dmvhome=System.getProperty("DMV_HOME");
But when you run the program you have to pass the environment variable to the program
using -D option
java -DDMV_HOME="%DMV_HOME%" GetProperty
Assume that my program name is GetProperty.java;
