In last article, we show you how to convert properties file into XML file. See following XML file :


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE properties SYSTEM "http://java.sun.com/dtd/properties.dtd">
   <properties>
	<comment>Support Email</comment>
	<entry key="email.support">donot-spam-me@nospam.com</entry>
   </properties>

In this example, we show you how to use loadFromXML() method to load above XML file into a properties object, and get the key “email.support” value via getProperty() method.


package com.mkyong;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.util.Properties;

public class PropertiesXMLExample
{
    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException
    {	
    	Properties props = new Properties();
    	
    	InputStream is = new FileInputStream("c:/email-configuration.xml");
    	//load the xml file into properties format
    	props.loadFromXML(is);
    	
    	String email = props.getProperty("email.support");
    	
    	System.out.println(email);
    	
    }
}

Output
The above example will print out the value of properties key : “email.support” :


donot-spam-me@nospam.com
