Due to a business case, we need to create a properties file and update it when needed.
Should this data realy be in a properties file and not the database?
If it is a non-generic properties file, where can I locate the property file??(we use weblogic as the app server).
I would define a directory to store the files in, say (/opt/properties or C:\MyApp\properties). And give the weblogic owner write/read for just this directory.
Is it suggested to access files and update them in J2EE(if the updates and access are done on the server side)???
Sure, this is done by the container all the time. Just make sure you don't introduce any security bugs.
