I'm newbie to Java with Unix.

I would like to know how to write a shell script to run the .class file, which in turn loads the properties files.

Appreciated your help !!

What have you tried? Shell scripts work just about the same as you would do on the command line.

You can look at shell scripts that are provided with various Java apps (Ant, Maven, JMeter, etc) as examples, though they tend to be rather involved. The JBoss in Action source code comes with several basic scripts used to run the examples (search for *.sh).
