Component properties are set according to the precedence of configuration path directories. For example, a configuration path might look like this:


Given this configuration path, properties that are set in localconfig always have precedence over those set in config. So, when Nucleus needs to configure the component /services/Sunny, it looks for as follows:

If Nucleus fails to find in the configuration path, it generates an error.

Configuration Path versus CLASSPATH

An application’s configuration path and Java’s CLASSPATH behave differently as follows:

Note: Never place .class files in the configuration path directory path. Doing so can yield errors, as the .class files might interfere with Nucleus’ ability to resolve component names.
