Subject Setting PropertySourceVault programatically in o.a.t.util.digester.Digester
Date Mon, 11 Sep 2017 18:07:58 GMT
Hi all,

I'm fairly certain that there isn't a way to do this currently (I'm
not so good with Reflection, so there could be), but I have to ask
anyway. Let me explain my use case...

I'm using tomcat embedded (8.5.x/trunk) and have a need to
programmatically configure and use a PropertySource before starting
tomcat. Using an instance that way is easy. The problem falls when
users need to configure tomcat to also use the PropertySource
implementation to extract information from their application XMLs by
way of the Digester. The issue with this is that I cannot instantiate
two instances of the PropertySource implementation class that I'm
using because the library won't allow it and therefore Tomcat doesn't
correctly configure the PropertySource.

So, my questions comes down to "Can I configure a PropertySource
instance and pass that to tomcat's Digester before tomcat starts?". Is
this a silly question? If so, why?
