Subject [jira] [Created] (CONFIGURATION-535) Add getters for the initial parameters of DatabaseConfiguration
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 16:22:15 GMT
Yanlin Ye created CONFIGURATION-535:

             Summary: Add getters for the initial parameters of DatabaseConfiguration
                 Key: CONFIGURATION-535
             Project: Commons Configuration
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Yanlin Ye
            Priority: Trivial

We use database configuration to support a centralized location for configuration properties
common to some distributed components of our application, and it works great.  In order for
our application components to report issues (especially when we have database connection issues),
we extended database configuration to maintain a backup cache for all properties and update
the cache whenever a property is accessed.  This way, the cached properties can be used if
the properties cannot be loaded from the database.  The extension works as expected and can
report issues even if the database connection becomes not available.

The only (minor) thing is that, when we extended DatabaseConfiguration, we had to maintain
another copy of the initial parameters such as table name, name/key/value columns, etc, because
DatabaseConfiguration does not provide access to them.  I was wondering whether or not the
following can be added to DatabaseConfiguration to make it easier to be extended.

- Add getters for initialization parameters, and
- Change private void close(Connection, Statement) to protected for reuse.

Please ignore if you don't think the suggested changes can be useful to users.
