What does the properties file contain?  Where does it live? What needs changing?

this is a sample properties file:
dataSource.username=someuser

i'm executing a code locally, to change a local properties file.

for example the password property
or the username property
the file contains alot of properties.

The properties file is mostly used in Java, for example jdbc.properties
you can change username, password, port# and other properties.

So this is basically an INI file then.  This page has vbscript for reading and writing INI files, would take much to modify it: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/vbstech_files_ini.php
