Yes, there is an example like this in the HM docs, although you use an XML
contribution to provide the collection data directly in the module.
Otherwise you could implement a service.

You couldbBuild a service around your properties file. I am going to be
using HSQLDB for a light weight yet more flexible way to do properties, and
provide a more generic main DB service where I can serve out more
sophisticated settings. I just have a get/set property method and use the
neat HSQLDBs TEXT table extension to keep the data in a CSV. Properties
files used directly in Java can use escape codes though, and you may want to
take that into consideration if you use HSQLDB.
