All,

For working with multiple input files say for example Test.txt,Test1.txt,Test2.txt should I need multiple property files or is it possible to configure in the same property file "sampleprops.xml". If I have to read multiple input files how to differentiate between them (with filenames)?

It's entirely up to you whether you centralize your properties in a single properties file or whether you have one properties file for each input file you want to describe.

And yes, in most systems the easiest way to refer to a file is by its name. However your system may or may not follow that pattern; again, it's up to you to figure that out.

That may sound very vague, but consider the fact that all we know about your system is that it uses files.
