Set a session variable from a properties file


Hi all,

I it possible to set a session variable from some kind of properties file?

Ive been trying this:

session.setAttribute
( "amt, <bean:messagekey="sub.amt" /> );

But I get this error:

Missing term. session.setAttribute( "amt, <bean:messagekey="sub.amt" /> );

Thanks for any help

Yes it is but not like that. You can't mix custom tags with scriptlet java code. You need to do it all in the scriptlet code.

<%
    // Read properties file.
    Properties properties = new Properties();
    try {
        properties.load(new FileInputStream("filename.properties"));//make sure the name of the file is correct
    } catch (IOException e) {
       //deal with the exception
    }
    //add the value to the session object
    session.setAttribute( "amt", properties.getProperty("sub.amt") );

you can try using  
properties.load(new FileInputStream(request.getContextPath()+"/config/myProp.properties");
or
properties.load(getClass().getResourceAsStream(request.getContextPath()+"/config/myProp.properties"));

Sorry, that last one needs to find it on the classpath( in the classes folder for example).  
properties.load(getClass().getResourceAsStream("/myProp.properties"));
