Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-268) XMLConfiguration does not fully support disabled delimiter parsing
Date Mon, 07 May 2007 19:42:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-268?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12494115
] 

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-268:
--------------------------------------------

Adding new elements would change the indices of list elements in an almost unpredictable way.
This could be quite confusing if keys with indices were used.

I think I will go for the solution with the special delimiter and add some notes to the Javadocs.
I just found out that we do not support escaping the escape character itself (e.g. in <dirs
value="C:\Temp\,C:\Progs\"> the backslash behind Temp would escape the list delimiter).
Will try to fix this.

> A call to setDelimiterParsingDisabled(true) should completely turn off the mechanism
for searching for list delimiters and splitting property values.
> However XMLConfiguration.save() escapes list delimiters even in this mode. When later
such a configuration file is loaded and delimiter parsing is turned off, the values of affected
properties will contain the escape character.
