Subject RE: enhancement for PropertyFile, have a patch
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2005 17:49:15 GMT
Antoine,

I'll certainly have a look at the filterchain stuff
and see how much overlap there is between the work I
did and that. The meterial that I prepared is only in
passing a patch to PropertyFile, the main piece of any
interest is a subclass of Properties which retains the
format of the input stream from which properties were
loaded, and which I thought to put in the public
domain.

Anyway, since you have picqued my interest, I will
look at the filterchain stuff, which I am not
currently familiar with.

PHiL
