Subject [properties]Why .properties instead of XML?
Date Fri, 29 Aug 2003 17:11:16 GMT
Hi,
Just made a successful build of Geronimo - albeit with
-Dmaven.test.failure.ignore=true..

Noted that some of the .conf files are XML files while there are still
some .properties file?  What is the rationale behind this?  Why not use
.properties files or XML files uniformly for every configuration file?

Also, why name some XML files as .conf files?  Can't they be named .xml
to easily identify them as XML files?  May be like {some-name}-conf.xml?
Or put all configuration files under a conf directory with XML
extension?
