Subject Re: Custom ConfigurationFactory not loaded

It also occurs to me that the plugin manager may not be finding the plugin.  If you are using
2.0 then I believe the annotation processor should register the factory as a plugin automatically.
If you are using an older release you might have been required to call PluginManager.addPackage(“com.myorg.mypackage”)
to have the plugin manager search for your plugin.

getSupportedTypes() returns. The generic ConfigurationFactory inspects all the ConfigurationFactory
plugins using the order to determine which should be inspected first, second, etc.  It calls
getSupportedTypes to find out what file extensions the ConfigurationFactory handles. If the
provided configuration file matches one of the file extensions than that factory will be used.
 “*” is used as a wildcard to specify that it handles any file extension (which is what
the XMLConfigurationFactory does).  However, with an Order of 10 if you specified a “*”
I believe your factory would have to handle XML, JSON and YAML configurations.
