MicroProfile Config

MicroProfile Config defines a set of supported default ConfigSources for environment variables, system properties, and META-INF/microprofile-config.properties files on the classpath, with specific ordinals.

Magnolia also supports configuration properties files (and YAML files too) on webapp level, under WEB-INF/config/default/microprofile-config.properties.

Magnolia can scan more locations for configuration properties files and uses the SmallRye Config library for implementation. Therefore, it supports passing such locations through the smallrye.config.locations config property.

This enables developers to build containerized images of Magnolia once, and deploy anywhere, using — for example — Docker bind mounts, or Kubernetes ConfigMaps.

Property injection

While Magnolia supports injecting @ConfigProperty fields into managed components, it’s not fully interoperable with the CDI specification.

Magnolia uses Google Guice for dependency injection.
