Subject [Configuration] Caching properties
Date Tue, 06 Apr 2004 16:16:36 GMT
>From what I've seen of the documentation and javadocs, using Configuration
requires creating  new object which will then read in the properties file.
If I have 20 classes, all using the same property file, I'd like to avoid
having 20 Configuration objects that parse the config file 20 times.  Is
there anything wrong with creating a singleton which has a
getConfiguration() method to return a global Configuration class?  I know I
could go one step further and have the Singleton implement the Configuration
interface but that seems to be a lot of unnecessary work.

An alternative would be like in log4J where they have a static getLogger()
method in the Logger class.  But in looking at the source, log4J actually
creates a new logger each time instead of caching it.

Any suggestions?
