having problem loading a property file

112 100+
I am having trouble loading a property file and keep getting this error when running my shell script that loads and runs my jar files, etc:

no property file loaded, using defaults... (java.io.FileNotFoundException: /home/dedhia/.jftp/jftp.properties (No such file or directory))

Here is my java code in which I get the property file:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.         String propertyFile = System.getProperty("Outlier.PropertyFile","OutlierReportGenerator1.PROPERTIES");
  2.         System.out.println(propertyFile);
  3. //Location of property file
  4.         properties = new File(File.separator + "home" + File.separator + "dedhia" + File.separator + "OutlierReportGenerator" + File.separator + "classes" + File.separator + propertyFile);
  5.         System.out.println(properties);
  6.         BufferedReader BR = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(properties));
  7.         System.out.println("I got to this pt");
  8.         String line = BR.readLine();
Here is the shell script where I run my program:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. /usr/local/jdk1.6.0_11/bin/java -Dreports="true" -Dmail="true" -Dconnect="true" -Dccserv="true" -DOutlier.PropertyFile=OutlierReportGenerator1.properties -cl
  2. asspath /home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes:/home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes/jftp.jar:/home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes/jxl.jar:
  3. /home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes/produtil.jar:/home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes/activation.jar:/home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/class
  4. es/mail.jar:/home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes/classes12.zip:/home/dedhia/OutlierReportGenerator/classes/OutlierReportGenerator.jar ReportGenerator
The OutlierReportGenerator.jar is the jar that I am exporting from eclipse, which contains all of my java code. Report Generator is the class in which main is at.

Am I doing something incorrect in the way that I am loading my property file because I have tried a few different things but seem to get the same error over and over again.

Thanks for the help!!!
