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

It looks like this would be an enhancement to the StrSubstitutor class in Commons Lang.

Will raise a JIRA their and also see if I can figure and submit a patch

> It would be really handy of Commons Configuration could support nested variable interpolation:
> org.osgi.framework.system.packages=org.osgi.framework; version=1.4.0, \
>  org.osgi.service.packageadmin; version=1.2.0, \
>  org.osgi.service.startlevel; version=1.1.0, \
>  org.osgi.service.url; version=1.0.0, \
>  org.osgi.util.tracker; version=1.3.3 \
>  ${jre-${java.specification.version}}
> The process being to expand innermost variable references first and work outwards - this
allows for very advance config, such as the above, which can dynamically detect the Java version
and expand a JRE version specific property into the property being defined.
> Care is needed to avoid recursion, which can been handled through use of a "Cycle Map"
that detects of an inner variable has already been referenced. 
> An example of this can be found in the substVars method of the Apache Felix org.apache.felix.framework.util.Util
class.
