Hi linshad k,

Please check whether the user with which you are logged in has sufficient permissions to perform the edit on the file.

Hey linshad k ,

If you're on a Linux OS, just double click on the war file, right lick on db.properties and use gedit or any other tool to modify the db.properties. You should be prompted to save the changes to the war file.Make sure the war file can be written to by

sudo chmod -R 777 /path/to/activiti-explorer.war

Or if you're using Windows, use this technique here: Manipulating JARs, WARs, and EARs on the command line | JavaWorld 

Hope this helps
