+++ <html>
+++ <body>
+++ <p>The Configuration API is a simple but powerful API for handling configuration
+++ issues inside your application. It provides a standard mechanism for getting
+++ configuration values inside your application code. The Configuration API is only
+++ the public API your should be built upon. Besides the API you will need an
+++ implementation of the API. Currently there is one implementation for using
+++ Spring: The <a href="daisy:1304">Cocoon Spring Configurator</a>.</p>
+++ <h2>The Settings Object</h2>
+++ <p>The Configuration API defines the <tt>Settings</tt> bean
+++ (<tt>org.apache.cocoon.configuration.Settings</tt>). You can use this bean
+++ get configuration values for your application. Configuration values are stored
+++ in a key/value pair fashion (similar to the properties) and the settings object
+++ provides several methods to access this information.</p>
+++ <p>Please note, that this is just the client API your code should rely on. The
+++ Configurator API does in no way define how the actual configuration takes place!
+++ </p>
+++ <h2>Utility classes</h2>
+++ <p>The <tt>org.apache.cocoon.configuration.MutableSettings</tt> class
is a
+++ default implementation of the settings object. For example, this class can be
+++ used as a mock object for unit testing.</p>
+++ <p>The <tt>org.apache.cocoon.configuration.PropertyHelper</tt> class
+++ various helper methods for dealing with properties and settings.</p>
+++ <p>The <tt>org.apache.cocoon.configuration.PropertyProvider</tt> interface
is an
+++ interface that can be used by implementations of the Configuration API to allow
+++ custom code to be executed for configuring a settings object.</p>
