I used to work on a legacy swing application where application configuration like db-config-params are read from a plain file like app.propperies. How is this done in E4 FX environment. I have read about the @Preference or the @ContextValue annotation. But i can't see how this ist configured via a simple textfile.
I appreciate any advice.
Thanx Dieter

Hi,

Yes this sounds like a @Preference usecase, the password might even go
into the secure store (not sure we support that currently).

Our preference story is backed by Equinox-Preferences store so
-pluginCustomization should work [1]. Another option if that does not
work out for you is that you do it yourself inside your lifecyle
@PostContextCreate.

Tom
