public class DefaultPropertiesPersister
Default implementation of the PropertiesPersister interface.
Follows the native parsing of java.util.Properties.
Allows for reading from any Reader and writing to any Writer, for example
to specify a charset for a properties file. This is a capability that standard
java.util.Properties unfortunately lacked up until JDK 5:
You were only able to load files using the ISO-8859-1 charset there.
Loading from and storing to a stream delegates to Properties.load
and Properties.store, respectively, to be fully compatible with
the Unicode conversion as implemented by the JDK Properties class. As of JDK 6,
Properties.load/store will also be used for readers/writers,
effectively turning this class into a plain backwards compatibility adapter.
The persistence code that works with Reader/Writer follows the JDK's parsing
strategy but does not implement Unicode conversion, because the Reader/Writer
should already apply proper decoding/encoding of characters. If you use prefer
to escape unicode characters in your properties files, do not specify
an encoding for a Reader/Writer (like ReloadableResourceBundleMessageSource's
"defaultEncoding" and "fileEncodings" properties).
