Here's (http://bit.ly/8qX4X8) an article showing a simple and elegant way of reading and configuring properties/configuration files in Java applications using annotations. Properties files are one of the most frequently used mechanism for storing configuration information for applications. And so is the code to access these properties from the application. This article is intended to demonstrate (source code can be downloaded here) a simple way of configuring and using Properties files in Java applications. Usage Example: 1. Cofiguring: @PropertiesHolder(file="app.properties", autoLoad=true) private static Properties appProps; 2. Reading: String title = PropStore.getAppProps().getProperty("APP_TITLE"); The full article can be read here: http://bit.ly/8qX4X8 Please post your comments and feedback.

Please note, that most of the modern web based frameworks do have some sort of Properties/configuration framework built in. This article is intended for applications that do not have such frameworks/facilities availableI am sorry but Commons Configuration is *not* a web based framework.
