Sometimes, We want to include special characters in the value of the properties file. The properties file is a complete feature described below with the example.
- Inline Comments
- key and value pair
- Key and value contains spaces
- Key and value contains special characters which are escaped by backslash
Let’s see a java properties file example.
# application.properties # This is one way to write a comment on properties ! this is another way to write a comment on properties name=john ## key can contain spaces with escape by a backslash full\ name= john # value can be spaces full\ name= john\ Andrew # Any special characters (:,=,\,@) are escape in key and values path=c:\\path name=firstname\:john,lastname\=andrew support.email=support\\@domain.com hr\:email=hr\\@domain.com # unicode location=\u005ctmp selectquery= select * from table where id=10
