+/**
+ * <p>
+ * A base class for <code>Configuration</code> implementations that are not
+ * hierarchical.
+ * </p>
+ * <p>
+ * Not all configuration classes store their data in a hierarchical manner. This
+ * class can serve as a base class for those non-hierarchical configurations. It
+ * does not make any assumptions about the concrete way of storing data. This is
+ * up to a concrete sub class, which has to implement the access methods like
+ * <code>getProperty()</code>, <code>setProperty()</code>, or
+ * <code>addPropertyDirect()</code> accordingly.
+ * </p>
+ * <p>
+ * What this class does is to implement a pseudo hierarchical structure on top
+ * of the data contained in the configuration. Whenever the root node of this
+ * configuration is requested, a hierarchy of nodes corresponding to the actual
+ * data is constructed on the fly. This node structure can then be used for
+ * performing queries or integrating this configuration into a combined
+ * configuration.
+ * </p>
+ * <p>
+ * Internally, this class uses some tricks to keep the node structure up to date
+ * and to avoid unnecessary operations on these nodes: It registers itself as a
+ * configuration listener at itself to get notified whenever the configuration
+ * is changed. When a change is detected, the node structure is invalidated, so
+ * that it has to be re-created when it is accessed the next time. On the other
+ * hand, this node structure is only created when it is needed, i.e. if truly
+ * hierarchical operations are to be performed. This means that as long as the
+ * configuration is only accessed and manipulated through the typical access
+ * methods, no additional overhead is created.
+ * </p>
