jar files and properties files or file IO

  Asked By: Joel    Date: Feb 23    Category: Java    Views: 1022

My java application loads some properties files in a sub-folder
(using ResourceBundle), as well as reading some other files in that
folder using FileInputStream. When I put my class files along with
the sub-folder into a jar file, when running the jar file it can no
longer find these files in the sub-folder. How do I get this to work?

Jar file contains only "src" folder, so create a file called "resource" and keep the properties file.

Code to read data from properties file.

Properties logProperties=new Properties();
String logTableName = logProperties.getProperty("PROPERTY_NAME");

All the best
