I am pretty new to Spring MVC. my problem goes as below.
i am using conventional directory strucure i.e. separate folder for properties,css,js under WEB-INF.
i have my servletname-servlet.xml and applicationContext.xml under WEB-INF
I have a home page where i show several links, which are stored in a properties file.
i can load a property file from the *-servlet.xml, pull a particular prop[which is a link]in my controller using EL and @Value annotation, store it in session and then display on my home page...works fine...but this involves a lot of tasks like pulling tht particular link from the servlet-context and storing in the session.
Is there a way that i load the property file from application context rather than servlet context and display the same directly on a JSP??
i hope i am clear enough...i don't want to meddle with session or anything...just configure my property file in say applicationContext and use EL to display a property on the JSP....
thanks in advance for the help.
PS -- even properties loaded in *-servlet.xml can't be displayed directly on a JSP...is there a way to do that either ??
