Configure my parser with external properties

Post by john » Thu Mar 29, 2007 11:29 am

Hello,

I'd like to configure my java parser with an external config file
(i want to be able to change the format date of my parser without recompiling it).

Thank you.

Hello,

You can simply use the configuration file "parsers.properties" located in the "config" directory of your LogMX distribution.
This 'properties' file is empty in LogMX distribution, and is parsed by LogMX at start-up (see comments in this file for further details). Properties contained in this file are available for Parsers using System.getProperty().
