If the file is in a jar, use Class#getResource to get the URL to it.
Don't use the File/IO approach.  Then use
PropertyConfigurator.configure(URL configURL) instead of
configure(Properties p).

You can also consider putting the properties file outside a jar, i.e.
under WEB-INF, and using the ServletContext#getResource approach instead
of Class#getResource.  This way you can easily modify the properties
file without having to repackage your jar.
