Subject Re: [configuration] is creating class instances possible?
Date Wed, 29 Dec 2004 12:28:39 GMT
ATM there is no such feature as instantiating objects from class names 
defined in configuration properties. So you will have to read the class 
name from the configuration and create the object by hand.

I miss such a feature, too, because I also often use the approach to 
define implementation classes for interfaces in configuration files. 
Perhaps you can open an enhancement request in bugzilla 
( so that the idea does not get lost.
