So you want to make calls from Java and set some properties file settings
before making the call? You should be able to make a bunch of these calls:


And then those settings (in that JVM context) will pre-empt whats in the
properties file. Let me know if it doesn't work.

Hi All,

I'm trying to link GrouperClient into an application & utilize the
web-service interface to Grouper. One of the issues I'm having is that
GrouperClient seems to require its own .properties file with no obvious way
to programmatically override anything about it. All of the applications
developed in my area use a centralized configuration-management solution
which then is plugged into applications we maintain. This gives us a single
place to update settings as credentials / servers / services / etc change
over time. What I'm looking for is some mechanism to either tell
GrouperClientUtils that after it loads the properties file but before it
sends any data back to the caller to set properties X,Y, and Z to values P,
D, and Q respectively, or alternatively, some kind of GrouperClient
configuration class/interface which I can extend/implement.
