jCMan is under development... so it is not reality, now.
We have many ideas for jCMan:
- stores configurations in a db
- can load configurations (the first time, i mean) from various sources: xml, property-like file, other dbs
- has a front-end gui for simple loading - viewing - modifying configurations
- it is client-server (a configuration server and multiple clients)
- it is multi-application: differents applications can ask to a single server. Each appplication retrieves only its configurations.
- it has a simple java Api to retrieve configurations
- it has a configuration version control
- it works in distributed environments
- if configurations are changed on the server, clients are notified
They are only ideas, at the moment. We probably will pick some of them (the most important) and ship with the first released version of jCMan... the other will follow
