I just wanted to confirm that the application specific properties file are kept in the "properties" folder of WAS?
Is there any other way also?

Keep .properties files in your WAR file if at all possible, i.e. in the same classpath with your class files. Avoid dumping files in the WAS folders whenever possible, as WAS has a tendency to swallow them or share them with multiple apps (which may or may not be the desired effect).

If you're building with WSAD, you can keep them in the Java Source folder with the right package name and it will automagically copy them to the WEB-INF\classes directory when you build the project.

Caveat: if the properties file matches one that WAS already uses and has higher on its classpath, your file will NOT be the one loaded.
