Java package for the reading of configuration/preferences files
Commons Configuration provides a generic configuration interface which enables an application to read configuration data from a variety of sources. Commons Configuration provides typed access to single, and multi-valued configuration parameters.
Configuration parameters may be loaded from the following sources
- Properties files
- XML documents
- JDBC Datasource
Different configuration sources can be mixed using a ConfigurationFactory and CompositeConfiguration. Additional sources of configuration parameters can be created by using custom configuration objects. This customization can be achieved by extending AbstractConfiguration.
