The platform provides a number of configuration files, as defined in the section on Configuring the platform.
The preferred model for updating the properties files that are part of the client platform is to add the global install handler to any feature that needs to update the configuration files. However, you are not limited to this as a solution for modifying the properties files. If you should choose to use your own management system to modify these files, please note that these are formatted as Java properties files, and there are specific rules for the formatting of these files. Refer to documentation on the java.util.Properties class for information on these restrictions.
