Oggetto: How to pass a global parameter to all servlet of a webapp

I have a webapplication which has 20/25 servlets, I have kept all global
settings of the webapp in a property file and want to pass these property
file path to all servlet .
I came to know that for individual servlet I can define init parameters as 

But again defining these for all servlet is a problem, so I am looking for a
settings which will be accessible to all servlet from a webapp.

One way which I can think of is to pass argument to java using
CATALINA_OPTS, but then it becomes accessible to all webapps. 
So please tell me if there is any way to have gloabl init parameters for all
servlet/JSPs of a webapp?
