Is there any justification in creating a cache that maintains values pulled from a given property file so that your app does not have to continually getProperty() on the same property over and over again?

The getProperty itselt is not a performance issue, because the Properties class inherits directly from a Hashtable. Just make sure your are not calling the load method each time you fetch a property value.
