You'll want to protect your WEB-INF directory as well as any properties 
files. You can do that by using by the following in your httpd.conf: 
(This should be the syntax)

<Files ~ "\.properties$">
     Order allow,deny
     Deny from all
     Satisfy All

<Directory ~ "/WEB-INF/">
     Order allow,deny
     Deny from all
     Satisfy All
