String path = getServletContext().getRealPath("/WEB-INF/filename.properties");

Properties properties = new Properties();
properties.load(new FileInputStream(new File(path)));

You could also try :
InputStream is = getClass( ).getResourceAsStream("filename.ext");
Properties properties = new Properties(is);
