Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1816) XML based serialized configurations
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2006 20:45:14 GMT
    [ ] 
Dain Sundstrom commented on GERONIMO-1816:

Not really.  The xstream solution is still object serialization based (just not using sun's
object stream code).  The output from xstream is not really controllable and tends to create
HUGE xml files, which can cause out of memory errors when loading them.  

To really fix this problem we need to generate clean object recipes (instead of final object)
directly from our build system.  Then we save the recipe to a custom xml format and rebuild
them later.  The recipe could conceivably be a spring BeanDefinition, but I would prefer to
see us code against an api that we control which can be easily be converted to a spring BeanDefinition.

 This will provide the maximum flexibility and make our configuration more future proof. 
It also allows an admin to directly modify the server in the case of a production outage.
