Configuring The Content Engine
For configuration purposes, the Content Engine is regarded as a hierarchy of configuration objects representing various parts of of the system. These configuration objects are called called components. Each component has properties that can be set in a corresponding configuration file. The configuration files are standard Java properties files with a well-defined format (see the Javadoc description of java.util.Properties.load(java.io.InputStream)).
The configuration files are stored in a folder tree that reflects the
component hierarchy. At the top of a
configuration tree, for example, you will find files such as
ServerConfig.properties, containing very general
configuration settings. At the bottom of the folder tree are files such as
that contain detailed settings for very specific parts of the system.
