What do you mean by "in XML"? XML is data, not a programming language, so it can't read a file. You would have to use whatever programming language you are using to process the XML to read the properties file.

And since it's a properties file, the best choice of language to read it would be Java.

I meant i need some values from properties file in a xml file.


now,instead of hardcoding 123 i need this to be from properties file.
We have to do this onloading of the xml file.

That sounds like a use case for a templating library such as Apache Velocity or FreeMarker.
I agree. Here's the link:
