> Hi,
> I have read that Commons Configuration is intended to be compatible with Java 1.3 but
would it be possible to create a configuration backend for the Preferences API provided since
Java 1.4?
> In my project I would like to use a very low-overhead configuration mechanism as is the
Preferences API while still having the flexibility and power offered by Commons Configuration.
In fact, being able to swap in a config file for testing purposes without changing the code
would be wonderful. However, I do not like the idea of providing the end user with such a
file or even a database, changing application settings should be done through the UI.
> If it is not possible to add a preferences backend to the code base due to the backward
compatibility policy, could such a backend then possibly be provided in another branch or
in a subproject?
> Best regards,
> Michael
