Class ConfigObject

All Implemented Interfaces:
GroovyObject, Writable, Cloneable, Map

public class ConfigObject extends GroovyObjectSupport implements Writable, Map, Cloneable
A ConfigObject at a simple level is a Map that creates configuration entries (other ConfigObjects) when referencing them. This means that navigating to will not return null but nested ConfigObjects which are of course empty maps The Groovy truth can be used to check for the existence of "real" entries.

      public Writer writeTo(Writer outArg) throws IOException
      Writes this config object into a String serialized representation which can later be parsed back using the parse() method
      Specified by:
      writeTo in interface Writable

    • getProperty

      public Object getProperty(String name)
      Overrides the default getProperty implementation to create nested ConfigObject instances on demand for non-existent keys
      Specified by:
      getProperty in interface GroovyObject
      name - the name of the property of interest
      the given property
    • flatten

      public Map flatten()
      A ConfigObject is a tree structure consisting of nested maps. This flattens the maps into a single level structure like a properties file
    • flatten

      public Map flatten(Map target)
      Flattens this ConfigObject populating the results into the target Map
      See Also:
    • merge

      public Map merge(ConfigObject other)
      Merges the given map with this ConfigObject overriding any matching configuration entries in this ConfigObject
      other - The ConfigObject to merge with
      The result of the merge
    • toProperties

      public Properties toProperties()
      Converts this ConfigObject into the java.util.Properties format, flattening the tree structure beforehand
      A java.util.Properties instance
    • toProperties

      public Properties toProperties(String prefix)
      Converts this ConfigObject ino the java.util.Properties format, flatten the tree and prefixing all entries with the given prefix
      prefix - The prefix to append before property entries
      A java.util.Properties instance

    • clone

      public ConfigObject clone()
      Returns a shallow copy of this ConfigObject, keys and configuration entries are not cloned.
      clone in class Object
      a shallow copy of this ConfigObject
    • isSet

      public Boolean isSet(String option)
      Checks if a config option is set. Example usage:
       def config = new ConfigSlurper().parse("foo { password='' }")
       assert'username') == false
      The check works only for options one block below the current block. E.g. config.isSet('foo.password') will always return false.
      option - The name of the option
      true if the option is set false otherwise
