Java Properties Deep Dive

Properties are around since java.  Properties are a persistent form of K/V pair which is mainly used for configuration. Configuration can be extrapolated all the way down to Feature Flags, Feature Toggles, and Canary. Java properties are cool because they are a simple API that allows you to do simple and yet powerful programing around them. There are 2 interesting projects enhancing properties such as Apache Commons Configuration and Netflix Archaius. These projects are pretty cool and give you killer functionally however the Java Stand SDK can also be pretty powerful if you have enough creativity and know-how to use it. So today I want to share a video exploring the Java Properties API in Depth showing how we can do some pretty powerful and simple configuration management for Dynamic Configurations, Feature Flags, Toggles, and more. So Let's get started!
