Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-314) Allow custom separator characters when writing out PropertiesConfiguration
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2008 19:24:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-314?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12583806#action_12583806
] 

David Felsenthal commented on CONFIGURATION-314:
------------------------------------------------

As well as a custom separator on write, a custom separator on read is needed.

I have to deal with legacy non-standard ini files , with # in the text fields, not quoted
or escaped.

I would have preferred to be able to override and extend  INIConfiguration, but could not.
Instead, I too, had to copy and modify chunks of code.

> While PropertiesConfiguration is tolerant of several different key/value separator characters
when reading a properties stream, it is hard-wired to use an "=" character when writing them
out again.
> Can we please have a way to customise this?  Seems like a perfect use for the PropertiesConfigurationLayout.
> Sadly, because of the way that PropertiesWriter has been implemented, it's impossible
to extend and override this behaviour without copying large chunks of code.
