There are many ways to read properties file in java. Here explained two wayS, using

1. ResourceBundle
2. Properties Class

How to use this tutorial
1. Create one directory src and put both below files (MyProp.properties and ReadPropFile.java)

2. MyProp.properties
name = Binod Kumar Suman
roll = 110
city = Bangalore

3. ReadPropFile.java

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.Properties;
import java.util.ResourceBundle;


public class ReadPropFile {

public static void main(String[] args) {
// readpropFile();
otherway();
}

public static void readpropFile(){
ResourceBundle bundle = ResourceBundle.getBundle("MyProp");
String studentName = bundle.getString("name");
String roll = bundle.getString("roll");
System.out.println("Student Name :: "+studentName);
System.out.println("Roll Number :: "+roll);

// Fetch all the Properties.

Enumeration keys = bundle.getKeys();
while(keys.hasMoreElements()){
System.out.println(keys.nextElement());
}

}
