Subject [configuration] PropertiesConfiguration doesn't throw exception when path is a directory
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2005 17:41:58 GMT
Hi all,

I recently noticed that when I use a string which is a directory to create a
PropertiesConfiguration, no exception is thrown.  Is this by intention?

For example, I do

PropertiesConfiguration temp = 
	new PropertiesConfiguration("c:/baddirectory");

I get the expected

org.apache.commons.configuration.ConfigurationException: Cannot locate
configuration source baddirectory

However, when I do 

PropertiesConfiguration temp2 = new PropertiesConfiguration("c:/windows");

I don't get any exception.  Is this a desired behaviour?  The difference
between "baddirectory" and "windows" is that the former doesn't exist and
the latter does.
