Lemme make the scene more clear.

There are java properties files which are having key and action related to that.(For example am attaching a property file,its like text file can open with notepad)

Here is the problm: Script should read that property file and if the value of property file is YES, then it should start the activity of dataload.or more precisly its should return YES valuse to crontab which will start the dataload, which i will configure in crontab.
If property file value is NO. then not to start dataload.

If you understand n how much u understand. then please help me out.

Please remove txt from extension as to get properties file.

if [ "$DATA_LOAD" -eq "YES" ]
