VAJ 3.5.3 - Can't find properties file

I have created an application that will log site activity into a DB2 table.

I am trying to read in the properties file and have placed my working directory.

I keep getting the following exception:

The user.dir is located at d:\program files\ibm\visualage for java\ide\project_resources\ECA_PSS error getting properties

Exception  d:\program files\ibm\visualage for java\ide\project_resources\ECA_PSS\DBServices.properties (The system cannot find the file specified)

java.io.FileNotFoundException: d:\program files\ibm\visualage for java\ide\project_resources\ECA_PSS\DBServices.properties (The system cannot find the file specified)

*************************************************

Any ideas on why this can't find the file?  It is located in d:\program files\ibm\visualage for java\ide\project_resources\ECA_PSS and it is name DBServices.properties

Thank you

Hi:

Select project name from left panel on which your property file must reside. Click right button and select import action. Check directory, Resource, search your property file only (java and classes not selected) and apply.

Bye.

That actually wasn't the problem, but by me going through your steps and including the resource file, it asked if I wanted to overwrite DBServices.properties.txt (There was already that resource file included in that direcory but it was not a properties file because the extension got messed up in Notepad).

I am awarding you the points not because your answer is exactly the solution to my problem, but it helped me to realize that I been staring at my monitor too long and probably would still be trying to figure out what the problem was had I not gone through those steps.

Thank you.
