XConfig For Mac Publisher's description

XConfig is the lightweight successor to the obix configuration framework.
XConfig is the lightweight successor to the obix configuration framework. It is a software configuration library that not only allows you to configure your applications via simple annotations, but which is also capable of dynamically picking up changes to configuration files, thus removing the need to reboot applications each time their underlying configurations change. Unlike its predecessor, it is closely integrated with the Spring framework; and this integration is achieved without sacrificing its compatibility with J2EE environments.
XConfig goes several steps better than existing schemes by providing simple and intuitive means, of encoding rich configuration data in XML, and of accessing such data from Javaв„ў applications. Access can either be via a simple API or annotations, thus preventing unnecessary intrusion into application code. Among the powerful, and yet simple, features provided by XConfig to simplify the representation, and use of configuration information are the following:
* Automatic and real-time change detection, and auto-reload of configuration data. This removes the need to reboot your application when making configuration changes.
* Annotations-based integration into Springв„ў applications. This removes the need to explicitly invoke XConfig API in your code.For non-spring applications, XConfig provides a simple API, which ensures that it does not intrude into your application code unnecessarily.
* Modularization of configuration data. This includes the ability to create a single configuration tree by "importing" other independent configuration documents into a single node.
* Simple plug-in/extension mechanisms and points, which enables application developers to tap into its strengths.
