Subject System.setProperty() virtualisable inside a webapp?
Date Wed, 27 Nov 2002 14:49:19 GMT
I'm in the position of needing to use a third-party class library within
a web application. This library uses the System.getProperty/setProperty
mechanisms to control its configuration.

However, I need several instances of the web application, each with this
library configured in a slightly different fashion.

Is it possible (currently, or with classloader tweaks) to "virtualise"
the set of properties available through the System object to each web


PS. I'd appreciate a CC: on this so it lands in the right mailbox.
