Re: [virgo-dev] bundle configuration files as JSON or XML

Thanks for replying.

The actual problem is this. We need some complex configuration which
is hard to write in a .properties file so we have two files: one
.properties file which points to an .xml file containing the full
configuration.

When somebody changes the xml he will also "touch" the properties file
such that the configuration change is loaded by the bundle.

This pretty ugly.

Now I was thinking that it would be nice to have only the .xml file
and be notified by Virgo when the file is changed.

This xml file could have any structure the bundle needs.
