I'm looking for a way to use properties loaded by the PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer directly in my JSP page. I don't want to have a setter for all of my controllers for certain properties. For example, I want to use a property from one of my loaded property files to set the base href of all the JSP pages. I found this so far: http://j2eecookbook.blogspot.com/200...ia-spring.html, but I am wondering if there is an easier way. Maybe there is a better way to set the base href property.
