Configuration, focusing on Galaxy
I have been noodling on the best general purpose application configuration model, and mechanism, I can find lately – that is, trying to find something general purpose that I don’t think is miserably bad. Specifically, configuration of heterogeneous applications in a hosted/SaaS/distributed/blah type system.

Using it for something like execv(3) looks like: POSIX posix = POSIXFactory . getPOSIX ( new POSIXHandler () { @Override public void error...
