Possibly. The AppBean stuff is very simple, rather generic:
<string name="hello" value="Boo!" />
<boolean name="isTesting" value="true" />
<bean name="bar" jclass="org.example.Bar">
<int name="prop1" value="42" />
<string value="Hello" />
<string value="Goodbye" />
It's something I wrote a *long* time ago, and use as a quick'n'dirty
way of configuring some of my applications. The two you might have
come across are the Eponine trainer and Dazzle DAS server. As I say,
it's quite old, and I'm not that happy about the format (although
I've not seen anything similar which handles collections so nicely).
I don't think I'd really advise it for new projects unless you either
like it, or need something that works very quickly. SOAP-ENC probably
makes more sense these days.
