In asp and vb world I used a web.config file to store db connection strings and other common stuff.

If there a similar thing that can be used in the Java world to store connection strings without having to recompile the application?  

thanks

Properties is a class in the API. It usually works with a file in the application, stored anywhere, but often in the classpath

you should define your database as a data source and specify the connection details in your apps context file and access it via jndi

For others reading this the accepted solution is completely unnecessary, there is already a standard method for providing connection details. Nobody doing Java web development uses a separate properties file to store these details :)

So what is the standard method.?
I gave the point the to cehj as he did give me some pointers.  I actually am defining the string in a bean and then calling that.
