yeah, but then I'd have to use java1.4 everywhere :)

I have an XSD/XML set for properties that castor generated code parses;
munges it to a HashMap for now; may go more hierarchical in future. the
config files can be text or database generated.

My long term objective is for components to be hierarchically configurable
using a good mechanism that works against LDAP, DB and XML sources...the
idea is that things dont care about how they are configured in the grand
scheme of things, just that they can get their config data somewhere.
