 Template Engines > Velocity > Load Template from FileSystem

Load Template from FileSystem 

Apache Velocity is a free, simple and powerful template engine written in 100% pure Java. This requires the libraries velocity-1.7.jar, oro-2.0.8.jar, commons-lang-2.4.jar, commons-collections-3.2.1.jar, commons-logging-1.1.jar, log4j-1.2.12.jar to be in classpath. The following example shows loading a Velocity template from the given directory.

File Name  :  
/VELOCITY001/config/basic.vm 

File Name  :

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.velocity.tests;

import java.io.StringWriter;

import org.apache.velocity.Template;
import org.apache.velocity.VelocityContext;
import org.apache.velocity.app.VelocityEngine;
import org.apache.velocity.runtime.RuntimeConstants;

public class LoadTemplateFromFSTest {

  /**
   @param args
   */
  public static void main(String[] args)  {

    /**
     * Initialize engine and get template
     */
    VelocityEngine ve = new VelocityEngine();
    ve.setProperty(RuntimeConstants.RESOURCE_LOADER, "file")
    ve.setProperty(RuntimeConstants.FILE_RESOURCE_LOADER_PATH, "C:/Temp");
        Template template = ve.getTemplate("basic.vm")//Loads C:/Temp/basic.vm
        
        /**
         * Prepare context data
         */
        VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext();
        context.put("site""BE THE CODER");
        context.put("tutorial_name""Apache Velocity");

        /**
         * Merge data and template
         */
        StringWriter swOut = new StringWriter();
        template.merge(context, swOut);
        
        System.out.println(swOut);
  }
}
   

It gives the following output,
