Application Configuration

Purpose

A utility to manage application configuration.

Methods

Binding name: p6.appconfig


Method: void save(String appKey, Map<String, Object> config)

Save the configuration defined in a key/value map.

The configuration is stored into a table AppConfig attached to the application appKey. The table will automatically be created if it does not exist.

Each value is converted to its string representation before being saved. The following types are supported :

  • String (default)
  • Double
  • Long
  • Integer
  • Float
  • Boolean
  • Byte
  • UUID
  • Date
  • ZonedDateTime
  • Character

If the type of the value does not match one of the previous types, the fallback conversion used will be the String.


Method: Object get(String appKey, String key)

Returns the configuration value

A B2boxException exception will be throw if:

  • the AppConfig table does not exist
  • there is no configuration entry for the specified key

Examples

Example 1

Save the initial configuration

p6.appconfig.save("p6_demo", [
    "description": "free text",
    "initialized": true,
    "version": 1
])

Example 2

Read configuration

def description = p6.appconfig.get("p6_demo", "description")
boolean initialized = p6.appconfig.get("p6_demo", "initialized")
