This week's book giveaway is in the Java in General forum. We're giving away four copies of Think Java: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist and have Allen B. Downey & Chris Mayfield on-line! See this thread for details.
I've used @Parameters, but not from a file. However, it's just Java so you can absolutely read from a file. Just like reading from any other file. Maybe Scanner to read a line and split() to parse the columns? The only thing to watch for is that your file is in the classpath.
