Subject Configuration and final parameters
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 14:34:43 GMT
Someone in our group recently discovered that Configuration parameters 
marked final can still be set().  The final designation only seems to be 
important when loading resources and is ignored when individual 
properties are modified.  The javadocs do call out loaded resources 
explicitly, but there's no indication as to why final properties are not 
checked during individual property modifications.  Bug or intentional?  
Will something break if it calls set() and subsequently doesn't see the 
updated value because the final parameter silently ignored the new setting?

The lack of checks in the set methods appear to be an oversight, but 
maybe I'm missing a use case?
