----------------------------------------

    Environment:     (was: Operating System: other
Platform: Other)
        Summary: Inconsistent handling for keys that don't exist  (was: [configuration] Inconsistent
handling for keys that don't exist)

> Inconsistent handling for keys that don't exist

>                 Key: CONFIGURATION-78
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-78
>             Project: Commons Configuration
>          Issue Type: Bug

> The getXXX(String key) methods in AbstractConfiguration are not consistent in 
> how they handle non-existing keys:
> getProperty(String key) - returns null
> getString(String key) - throws an exception if isThrowExceptionOnMissing is true
> getShort(String key) - throws an exception
> getStringArray(String key) - returns an empty array (why not null?)
> etc.
> I suggest that all these methods (include getProperty()) will check 
> isThrowExceptionOnMissing and if true, throw an exception.
> As it is, it makes it hard to extend this class, and use Configuration in 
> general.
