Get Connection Properties from database

Are your database connection properties stored in... a database? I can sort of see why you might want to keep the connection info in one place and use it from both Perl and Java. But if the Java programs connect to the database to get this info, IMO it would be easier to just have the Perl program make a DBI connection to get it as well. I admit I may not really understand the goal here.
