Using a Config/Properties File for your Application

This question is answered

Good day.

Does anyone use a config or properties file (similar to the .properties files you see in OE)  or anything else to specify configuration data for your application? If so, what approach did you take? XML or JSON data? Text file with a home-grown parser to get keys/values?

Thanks.

  • Thanks all for the input.

    "So why you don’t just use a simple properties file format like Java.."

    That is what we were/are leaning towards; I just wanted to see if there was a "better" way that we had not considered.
