RTFM on Class#getResource and ServletContext#getResource.

A bit presumptuous this morning? ;)  No, that's not what I'd tell you.
You can put the properties in a separate file.  Use either of the above
two methods to load the file.

Sharing configuration files between applications is something the
Servlet Spec frowns upon a bit, as webapps should be self-contained.
But if you have to do it, put the file in a shared classloader
repository (such as common/lib, common/classes, shared/lib, or
shared/classes in Tomcat) and use the Class#getResource approach.
