Have you looked at the unit tests for the configuration project?

Commons projects generally have pretty good unit test coverage, which 
means that there is almost certainly an example of reading  a plist file 
and extracting a value from it in there somewhere.

In general, the unit tests for a project are a good source of examples 
when the explicit user examples and tutorials don't cover what you need 
to do.

The unit tests can be fetched from the Apache subversion system using 
the url that is in the left-hand navigation bar.
