Subject [jira] [Created] (ZEST-117) Investigate "external" Configuration
Date Wed, 26 Aug 2015 05:31:46 GMT
Niclas Hedhman created ZEST-117:

             Summary: Investigate "external" Configuration
                 Key: ZEST-117
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-117
             Project: Zest
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Niclas Hedhman

There is configuration and then there is configuration.

The Zest Configuration concept is primarily concerned over application internal details, and
because of its ease-of-use, the larger picture is not in full view.

In the enterprise, there are massive systems designed to externalize configuration from applications,
and those applications often need to interface with those.

We should investigate how these systems are typically built and organized, and see if we can
make a reasonable abstraction, that ties into the Configuration concept in Zest. Allowing
Configuration to be backed by networked service(s) or even file system data.

This may very well tie into the UnitOfWork-Services, that Kent has recently raised, and might
therefor be dependent on the overhaul of the UoW definition.
