Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-401) HierarchicalConfiguration does not support hierarchy from property files
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2009 20:58:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-401?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12776651#action_12776651

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-401:
--------------------------------------------

I agree with Ralph in most points. Your request seems very specific to me. Basically, you
want Commons Configuration to support a proprietary properties format. I doubt that this might
be useful for many other users.

So if anybody comes up with a patch, we will evaluate it. But I would be reluctant to adding
such a feature unless the implementation is pretty generic so that it supports a broad range
of conversions to hierarchical configurations.

> If you have hierarchy like this:
> persons.person.name=1
> persons.person.surName=2
> persons.person.phoneNum=3
> persons.person.name=4
> persons.person.surName=5
> persons.person.phoneNum=6
> persons.person.name=7
> persons.person.surName=8
> persons.person.phoneNum=9
> If I have a regular property configuration that loaded a file containing in the above.
then I transform into HierarchicalConfiguration  using: ConfigurationUtils.convertToHierarchical(configuration).
> The tree is not right.
> I can do this:
> hierarchicalConfiguration.subset("persons").subset("person(0)").getKeys()
> but this returned empty iterator:
> hierarchicalConfiguration.subset("persons").subset("person(1)").getKeys()
> Only the first person is available.
