Package org.apache.commons.configuration2.builder

package org.apache.commons.configuration2.builder

This package contains the implementations of configuration builder classes used to create new Configuration objects.

In Commons Configuration, configuration builders are responsible for the creation and initialization of Configuration objects. The typical use case is that a builder is created and configured with initialization parameters defining specific settings for the configuration to be created. The builder can then be stored centrally. Each component requiring access to configuration information queries the builder for its managed Configuration and can read or write properties as its pleasure.

Important note

This package contains a number of interfaces that reflect the initialization parameters available for supported configuration implementations. These interfaces are not intended to be implemented by client code! When new features are added to the represented configuration classes corresponding new methods will be added to them. This can happen even in minor releases.
