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

where does the properties file exist in the application?  

can you give a sample of a connection string inside this file?

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.
