When to use "getResourceAsStream" method?

I was confused using the said method because while loading some properties file people are following a different approaches...

Properties prop 
= new Properties(new FileInputStream(new File("<path of the properties file>"));

and few are using..

Properties prop 
= new Properties(getClass().getResourceAsStream("<path of the properties file>"));

Which one to use when?
