A simple configuration management library with out of the box YAML support.

  • Lightweight
  • Flexible
  • Out of the box support for YAML
  • Allows migrations / config file checks
  • Null-safe
  • Unit testing friendly

How it works

  • Each configurable value is a Property in ConfigMe. Properties are declared as public static final fields in classes which implement the SettingsHolder interface.
  • Configurations are read from a PropertyResource (e.g. the provided YamlFileResource), which abstracts reading and writing.
  • The property resource may be checked for completeness with the MigrationService, which allows you also to move renamed properties or to remove obsolete ones.
  • The SettingsManager unifies the members above. On creation, it provokes a check by the migration service and allows the user to get property values from.


Start using ConfigMe by adding this to your pom.xml:




    text: 'Hello'
    size: 12

public class TitleConfig implements SettingsHolder {

    public static final Property<String> TITLE_TEXT =
        newProperty("title.text", "-Default-");

    public static final Property<Integer> TITLE_SIZE =
        newProperty("title.size", 10);
    private TitleConfig() {
        // prevent instantiation

public class WelcomeWriter {
    public String generateWelcomeMessage() {
        SettingsManager settings = initSettings();
        // Get properties from the settings manager
        return "<font size=\"" 
            + settings.getProperty(TitleConfig.TITLE_SIZE) + "\">"
            + settings.getProperty(TitleConfig.TITLE_TEXT) + "</font>";
    private SettingsManager initSettings() {
        // Create property resource
        PropertyResource resource = new YamlFileResource("config.yml");

        // Create migration service
        MigrationService migrationService = new PlainMigrationService();

        // Create settings manager
        return new SettingsManager(resource, migrationService, TitleConfig.class);
