Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-316) Constructor XMLConfiguration(HierarchicalConfiguration) invalidates text in singular top element
Date Sun, 23 Mar 2008 19:17:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-316?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12581418#action_12581418
] 

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-316:
--------------------------------------------

After doing some tests the problems seems to be unrelated to the copy constructor: Simply
changing the text of the root element using
config.setProperty("", "new text");
has no effect when the configuration is saved. (After changing the text, the new text can
be queried; but the change is not written to file when save is called.)

That the name of the root element is lost is a different issue. I have created CONFIGURATION-318
to deal with it.

> When using the XMLConfiguration(HierarchicalConfiguration) constructor for copying an
XMLConfiguration e.g. originally read from the XML string <e a="v">example</e>,
the "example" text can still be retrieved from the copy using getString(""). When saving the
copy to an XML file, however, the text is not written; the resulting XML string is just <configuration
a="v"/>. I will attach sample code that illustrates this.
> Whether it is intended that the name of the top-level element gets lost as well, I don't
know (but that is not my focus here).
