And an error indicating that my url value didn't work.
I've read about the use of Gstring interpolation, but I don't see how to apply it in a properties file. I can, of course, write some method to walk through the properties, but I'm hoping for a more elegant solution.
The properties file is hundreds of lines long and will necessarily grow when the interpolation references are expanded. This will require significant manual effort, with the associated risk of fat-fingering and will increase the future maintenance issues.
I am already creating a simplyfied properties file (one database, one environment etc) so I can test the rest of the program. I was just hoping for a more elegant way.
