The PropertyService

The Imixs Workflow Engine provides a property service to manage application specific properties in a common way. The properties can be stored into a file named ‘’. The singleton ejb ‘PropertyService’ provides a service to access the file. The property file can be packaged together with an application in any ejb module. This in an example how to acces the

PropertyService propertyService;
void init() {
    // load configuration
    configurationProperties =propertyService.getProperties();
    // skip if no configuration available
    if (configurationProperties != null) {
       String myProperty=configurationProperties.getProperty("myProperty");

The properties are cached for each application using this service. If the properties have changed during runtime an application can reset the cached properties.

// change some properties...
// reset property configuration
// read new properties
configurationProperties =propertyService.getProperties();
