Subject [configuration] PropertiesConfiguration include functionality broken
Date Thu, 27 Oct 2005 14:44:35 GMT
Hi.
 
I believe I've found a bug in commons-configuration 1.1. Basically,
PropertiesConfiguration will not actually include files in an include
directive until the original properties file has been reloaded.
 
An example:
 
[prefs.properties]
include=other.properties
foo=pref test1
 
[other.properties]
bar=other test2
 
the test:
 
PropertiesConfiguration config = new
PropertiesConfiguration("prefs.properties");
config.setReloadingStrategy(new FileChangedReloadingStrategy());
 
int current = 0;
 
while(current < 2){
    System.out.println(config.getString("foo"));
    System.out.println(config.getString("bar"));
    current++;
    Thread.sleep(10000);
}
 
If this is run, and no files are touched, you'll get
pref test1
null
pref test1
null
 
If, however, you make a change to prefs.properties so the file gets
reread during the sleep, you'll get
pref test1
null 
pref test1
other test2
 
 
If you take out the reload strategy and run this against configuration
1.0, it works as expected. 
It may be noted that I have applied the patch supplied in bug 34289 by
Oliver Heger.
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=34289
 
I'd be happy to file a bug report, but someone else who can be more
concise may want to do it.
 
In the meantime, if any one has a quick fix for this, it would be
greatly appreciated.
