calling properties files from static class

I have a simple static class for creating a db connection, and need to be able to call a properties file with the db details in it from this class.
At the moment it uses a very basic:-
Properties props = new Properties();
props.load( new FileInputStream(new File("C:\\Java\\Tomcat \\webapps\\dbinit.properties")));
method, which is fine for a static location of the file, but a bit ugly.
I want to move the properties file into the WebApp (under /class folder I think) so need to know how to call the file from there?

has been taken from Jaikiran Pai's (One of the bartenders in Javaranch) blog.It explains as how can you read a properties file from within a web application.
I agree. Here's the link:

Is is possible to read values from a properties file but have those variables be static?
