I have a file called "database" where I have the url, login and pass to have an access to my DB.

I'm using this to open it :

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("database"));

But it just won't work.
The class where this line appear is in a package.
I have put the file out of the packages and in the package, but nothing work.

I'm using J2EE and Webtools Platform.

You did not give the right directory/folder.
Where is your program running and where is that file?

Proove this by applying the full path name; then it works.
