Subject [jira] [Commented] (POLYGENE-117) Investigate "external" Configuration
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2017 09:27:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/POLYGENE-117?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15896960#comment-15896960

Niclas Hedhman commented on POLYGENE-117:

Thanks for the very explicit write-up.

I had in mind, that there was a ConfigurationService composite type, which the Configuration
would use to fetch the default configuration from, instead of doing it so explicitly in the
catch{} clauses.The default Mixin would do something similar to what we do now, but with regular
Mixin override in bootstrap, users could extend this in a very simple fashion.

> There is configuration and then there is configuration.
> The Polygene 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 Polygene.
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.
