Have you looked at

  If the user's guide doesn't provide all the information you are  
looking for you might want to describe your use case so others can  
give you advice on how to do it.

In answer to your specific question, no it is not a singleton. But if  
your application keeps a reference to the configuration object you can  
retrieve the properties as often as needed. If your application needs  
to allow the configuration to be updated without restarting the  
application you should not transfer the data to other objects.  
Instead, use a reloading strategy and get the properties from the  
configuration every time they are needed.
