In our project we had the need to implement our id generator, but we just want to use it in test environment.

We cannot use the configuration described in:


Because we have restricted access to environment configurations.

We tried to define the id generator in WebAppInit:


But has no effect.

How can i change the configuration without change ZK.xml?

Thank you all :)

Thank you all for your answers, we decided to create a maven property configuration to change the value of the ID Generator.

A solution could be making a delegater CustomIdGenerator.

What do I mean with this, it's acting as a IdGenerator but has internally an other IdGenerater instance. So your methods just contain :

public void doX() {

But now you could instantiate the generator by yourself and in order if it's a test environment, you intantiate the testing Id generator, otherwise you set the other one.

Greetz chill.
