Cannot read Property file from JSP in a Web Module Project

I have tried to read the properties file in two ways but am not able to read it because i cannot find the correct path of the properties file.

<b>1st Method :</b>

Properties props = new Properties();

InputStream is =



if (is != null) {



Enumeration keysEnum = Props.propertyNames();

while (keysEnum.hasMoreElements()) {

out.println(keysEnum.nextElement()) ;


<b>2nd Method :</b>

Here "" is the package name and "test" is the Properties file name

ResourceBundlebundle = ResourceBundle.getBundle("");

for (Enumeration e = bundle.getKeys(); e.hasMoreElements();)


String key = (String) e.nextElement();

out.print((String) e.nextElement());

String s = bundle.getString(key);

request.getComponentSession().putValue(key, s);


I cannot read the properties file even when I keep in it the WEB-INF folder.

    Welcome to SDN.

    Did you place the properties file directly in WEB-INF? or WEB-INF/private/classes folder.

    Post your query in the "Java Programming folder" or "Portal Content Development" forum.
