Reading and Writing a Properties File

// Read properties file.
Properties properties = new Properties();
try {
properties.load(new FileInputStream("filename.properties"));
} catch (IOException e) {
}

// Write properties file.
try {
properties.store(new FileOutputStream("filename.properties"), null);
} catch (IOException e) {
}

Here is an example of the contents of a properties file:

# a comment
! a comment

a = a string
b = a string with escape sequences \t \n \r \\ \" \' \ (space) \u0123
c = a string with a continuation line \
continuation line
d.e.f = another string
