Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3847) LuceneTestCase should check for modifications on System properties
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2012 08:06:57 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-3847:

As far as I remember, the main problem with the Map interface in Properties is the values
coming from the parent object (passed in Parameter). When you wrap another properties object
with one that has the other one as "defaults" given in ctor, then your are fcked up if you
are using the Map interface. Which is not the case for system properties, but that's not guaranteed
(e.g. the Java JVM could set some basic properties in another Properties object and make the
changes available only through the overlayed properties object).

To fix the "defaults" problem I would go with the Enumeration<?> (works in Java 5, too)
in a "for(Enumeration<?> e=propertyNames(); e.hasMoreElements();)" loop.

If you use the Set interface, the inherited props would not have been seen and the system
may *delete* properties which are in a parent/"defaults" properties object.
