Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-601) honor values that are string literals
Date Wed, 13 May 2015 19:36:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-601?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14542531#comment-14542531

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-601:
--------------------------------------------

Indeed, we do not honer string literals. I fear this will not be easy to support, it comes
with a whole bunch of follow-up issues, e.g. support for different quote character, escaping,
line continuation, etc.

In your specific case, you are hit by the comma character being interpreted as list delimiter.
The user guide describes multiple approaches to work around this problem:
* http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-configuration/userguide_v1.10/howto_basicfeatures.html#List_handling
* http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-configuration/userguide_v1.10/howto_properties.html#Lists_and_arrays
* http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-configuration/userguide_v1.10/howto_properties.html#Special_Characters_and_Escaping

Note that in the upcoming version 2.0 the behavior of list delimiter parsing has changed.
It is then disabled by default (due to the many problems it has created) and has to be explicitly
enabled if desired.

> Parsing the following file, does not honor keys that are string literals such as:
> some_key = "hi there, would you like to (play with me)"
> yields:
> key: some_key
> val: "hi there
> rather than the expected result of:
> key: some_key
> val: "hi there, would you like to (play with me)"
