Subject [configuration] getProperties ?
Date Wed, 16 Jun 2004 18:06:18 GMT
I noticed the getProperties(String key, Properties defaultValue) method 
is only defined in the AbstractConfiguration class, and not in the 
Configuration interface. I didn't pay attention to this method before, 
but what is the motivation for getProperties anyway? [configuration] is 
supposed to provide a higher level replacement for the good old 
java.util.Properties, so that seems a bit odd to return a Properties 
here, returning a Configuration would be more appropriate.
