Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-336) Brackets in property key causes NumberFormatException
Date Thu, 14 Jan 2010 13:52:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-336?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12800203#action_12800203

Rob Walker commented on CONFIGURATION-336:
------------------------------------------

The fixes above provide a workaround, but it's not exactly a "low pain / low effort" option,
and is made harder by a lot of use of private methods in DefaultConfigurationKey etc preventing
a simple subclassing approach.

I suspect it's going to become a bigger issue for more people too, since Vista and Windows
7 both have additional environment/path variables that break this e.g.

ProgamFiles(x86) 

It seems a small and simple fix to DefaultConfigurationKey.KeyIterator could take away a ton
of pain for the simple case e.g.

        private boolean checkIndex(String key)
        {
            boolean result = false;

            try
            {
                int idx = key.lastIndexOf(getExpressionEngine().getIndexStart());
                if (idx > 0)
                {
                    int endidx = key.indexOf(getExpressionEngine().getIndexEnd(),
                            idx);
    
                    if (endidx > idx + 1)
                    {
                        indexValue = Integer.parseInt(key.substring(idx + 1, endidx));
                        current = key.substring(0, idx);
                        result = true;
                    }
                }
            }
            catch (NumberFormatException nfe)
            {
                result = false;
            }

            return result;
        }

> Explanation i got in mailing list from Oliver Heger
> I guess you use DefaultConfigurationBuilder for loading a combined 
> configuration?
> The exception is due to the fact that brackets have a special meaning in 
> the query syntax for hierarchical configurations. 
> (DefaultConfigurationBuilder transforms all configuration sources into 
> hierarchical configurations, so also for properties, which are not 
> hierarchical by default, the same rules apply.)
> So far escaping brackets or other specific characters in property keys 
> is not supported. It seems to be rather unusual to use brackets in 
> property keys, so you may well be the first one who noticed this problem.
> Unfortunately I don't have a working solution for this problem right 
> now.
