Subject Re: [configuration] ConfigurationXMLDocument question
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2004 05:47:04 GMT
Hi Andy,

you are right, ConfigurationXMLDocument has been removed for the 1.0 
release because of some incompatibilities with other classes (namely 
SubsetConfiguration), which are not easy to fix with the current design.

After the 1.0 release some refactoring is planed, which will hopefully 
solve these problems. Then ConfigurationXMLDocument will be added again. 
I cannot say if something will change in the API of this class, but the 
functionality is very likely to stay the same. So using it in your 
project won't probably be too problematic. But be aware that it will 
work well only with HierarchicalConfiguration classes and not with 
Configuration objects obtained from a ConfigurationFactory.


And please send such questions only to the appropriate mailing lists. 
Others might be interested, too. wrote:
