Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-353) Allow Commons Configuration to set system properties
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2009 09:11:07 GMT


Emmanuel Bourg commented on CONFIGURATION-353:

Commons Configuration is a generic API, not a framework. We cannot make restrictive assumptions
on how the API must be used. In particular we cannot judge that system properties are not
worth being initialized from something else than a properties file. What if someone wants
to use a INI or a plist file?

I understand the intent of the change, but I don't think SystemConfiguration should have been
changed. The configuration builder is the only "framework-ish" part of Commons Configuration,
this is where such changes can take place. The rest of the API should remain as generic as

> SystemConfiguration allows the system properties to be accessed as a configuration and
used in a combined configuration. However, no mechanism is available to set system properties
from an external file. Such a facility would alleviate having to place a bunch of -D options
on the command line.
