Property lists are an editable set of key-value pairs.
You can add property lists to WDT model files as WDT variables, which streamline the configuration of WDT model files. Once connected to a WDT model file, you can insert a property into the WDT model file as a WDT model token and edit token values from within the property list.
We recommend that you use the desktop application over the browser application when working with property list files.
If you’ve already created a property list file, you can upload it to WebLogic Remote Console where you can continue to edit it.
Property lists are generally
.props files though the WebLogic Remote Console supports other text file formats. In any case, each key-value pair must be on a new line and names and values must be separated by
:, or spaces. For example,
key value. See Properties (JDK 17) for more information on Java property list formatting.
The browser application behaves differently than the desktop application. While changes to the property list file are still saved automatically as you move around the console, they are not saved to your computer. This means that once you’re satisfied with your changes, you must click Download File to download the updated property list file to your computer.
Do not refresh the browser page or you will lose all your changes.
If the property list you edit is connected to a WDT model file as a WDT variable, any changes you make to a property name will not be reflected in the WDT model file. The WDT model file assumes you’ve added an entirely new property and the former WDT variable becomes a standalone WDT model token that’s not associated with the property list.
This will only remove the property list from the WebLogic Remote Console. The file will remain in the location designated on your computer. However, if you are using the browser application (and want to keep this property list file), make sure to download the file before deleting it in WebLogic Remote Console.
If you delete a property list that’s connected to a WDT model file, the WDT model file will remain unchanged but all WDT variables are converted to standalone WDT model tokens.
