A Couple External Configuration Gotchas


I've recently encountered a couple "why the heck is my external configuration considered invalid" problems and wanted to call out the solutions:

  • Make sure the default values have TWO underscores like DEFAULT__COURSE_ID.  Using one underscore breaks the reflection scheme.
  • Java default values MUST be static as in "public static final int DEFAULT__COURSE_ID".  Leaving out the static breaks the reflection scheme.
