Since java.util.Properties is based on java.util.Hashtable, you can get an enumeration over all of the property names with: Enumeration e = myProp.keys(); // or the easy to remember: Enumeration e = myProp.propertyNames() ; A Properties can list to a PrintStream like this: myProp.list( System.out ) ; // a nice readable format You can also save a Properites object to a file with the store() method A good reference such as Java in a Nutshell and/or copy of the JavaDocs is your friend.
