Enable agents to read properties files

Nowadays I store all my references to views, NSF's, links to external applications inside 1 central  properties file e.g. stored under "Resources\Files". From here I can re-use these dependencies inside my code (java, expression language, ssjs). Unfortunately older design elements like agents or LotusScript can not read these types design elements so here I must hard-code them or create some sort of profile or configuration Notes document. I guess in modern development the usage of a properties file is more daily routine to store and share application information than building a lot of additional design elements (forms, views) to achieve something similar. From code it is possible to read and write to these properties files.

    In the context of a Domino application it sounds odd to use a text/properties file to store its configuration. From a users point of view one might expect a graphical frontend to change settings. However you can do it e.g. by using the dbdesign library to access a file resource in the NSF.
