The property names are not significant.

Think of location as properties stored as objects and value
as properties stored as java.lang.String objects; locations of
files/directories vs a string of text.

Subject: doubt in property

Hi All,


I was trying to analyze following two lines.


<property name="catcs_log.file"

<property name="rules"                       value="prs_db.rules"/>


Following are my doubts


1: is it necessary to write .file in the property name in the first

2: Both are properties then why we are sometime using value and sometime


Request you to please let me know the significance


Please help
