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.

public class LoadTemplateFromFSTest {

     * 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();
