Program: How to load Properties file from a file system?


Description:

This example shows how to load properties file from a local file system. Here we are using FileInputStream to load the properties file. Here you have to pass the physical location of the file in the file system.


Code:
package com.java2novice.properties;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.util.Properties;

public class MyPropertyLoad {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		InputStream is = null;
		Properties prop = null;
		try {
			prop = new Properties();
			is = new FileInputStream(new File("C:/sample.properties"));
			prop.load(is);
			System.out.println("db.host: "+prop.getProperty("db.host"));
			System.out.println("db.user: "+prop.getProperty("db.user"));
			System.out.println("db.password: "+prop.getProperty("db.password"));
		} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (IOException e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}
}

sample.properties
db.host=appdomain.java2novice.com
db.user=java2novice
db.password=mypassword
db.service=orcl

Output:
db.host: appdomain.java2novice.com
db.user: java2novice
db.password: mypassword

Domain Naming Service(DNS)
It is very difficult to remember a set of numbers (IP address) to connect to the Internet. The Domain Naming Service(DNS) is used to overcome this problem. It maps one particular IP address to a string of characters. For example, www.java2novice.com implies com is the domain name reserved for US commercial sites, java2novice is the name of the company and www is the name of the specific computer, which is java2novice's server.
