Subject Re: [configuration] getProperty vs getPropertyDirect
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2004 07:14:44 GMT
After seeing the commit mails I may be a bit late.

I had some ideas about extending the interpolation mechanism to support 
other data types than string, too. For this use case the separation of 
getProperty() and getPropertyDirect() would be nice, as getProperty() 
being a generic hook that allows for manipulation of properties (like 
interpolation) before they are delivered to the caller.

But this was nothing concrete yet.
