Class Configuration

java.lang.Object
  extended byorg.apache.slide.util.Configuration

public abstract class Configuration
extends java.lang.Object

Provides default configuration for Slide components from the slide.properties configuration file. All slide features rely on the central configuration file.

The configuration file is loaded from the Java lib directory, the classpath and the Castor JAR. Properties set in the classpath file takes precedence over properties set in the Java library configuration file and properties set in the Slide JAR, allowing for each customization. All three files are named slide.properties.

For example, to change the domain init file in use, create a new configuration file in the current directory, instead of modifying the global one.
