File Extension Database


PROPERTIES files are used by JAVA as a property class to store properties and application parameters that are configurable.

These files allow you to manipulate files that permanently store a series of values, each matched to a name, similar to the names of variables that store values in memory.

It is important to note that PROPERTIES files can be loaded by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) using the API.

Once you upload the PROPERTIES files, they are kept on your hard drive in nested folders that represent the hierarchy of key-value pairs.

An example of these files structure is below:

language = EN
