Subject Re: Variable interpolation in composite configuration
Date Thu, 30 Nov 2006 21:02:29 GMT
Hi,

interpolation should work with a CompositeConfiguration. There are some 
unit tests that check this.

 From your XML configuration file:
 > ********************** config2.xml **********************
 >
 > <conf>
 >    <value name="${key1.property }"/>
 > </conf>

There is an additional space before the closing curly bracket in the 
variable. Is this a typo? This will cause the problem.
