Hi,

In the application context file  below am setting an properties file, getting an error as

<!-- set application properties -->
 <bean
  class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer">
  <property name="locations" value="classpath:src//config//global.properties.template" />
  <property name="systemPropertiesModeName" value="SYSTEM_PROPERTIES_MODE_OVERRIDE" />
  <property name="ignoreUnresolvablePlaceholders" value="true" />
  <property name="order" value="1" />
 </bean>

getting error as
[code]

Are you saying Spring is wrong about that?

No, i have properties file at the right path, but is it gives me the above error, what might be
the reason. Any other way  it can be set on spring applicationcontext

It sounds unlikely that you would have a folder called "src" on your classpath. Can you post a directory structure of your project? If you are using Eclipse (or other IDE) posting a screenshot of the project layout/structure would help!

Yes, although the word should probably be 'should' rather than 'would'. Spring seems to be saying that you DO have that as a classloading (resource) path. I'd look for that properties file in part of the binaries (class files/jars) tree and use that path instead

I don't do Spring so don't know how it does its builds, but the generic way with resources is often to take resource files from source locations and see that they end up in 'binary locations' by copying. Perhaps that is not getting done owing to some configuration error
