This project aims to provide a Java implementation for reading and writing Property List files. It will do so by providing an API which is intuitive for Java developers. This API is not modelled after Apple's API.
Property list files are mainly used by Mac OS X to store serialized objects in a key/value manner. These files usually have an .plist extension. In Mac OS X, Property List files are usually stored in a central location. This library can honour this convention and has conventions built in for *NIX and Windows as well. This makes the library a good platform independent alternative to Apple's own Defaults system or the Windows Registry. There are multiple kinds of Property List files; ASCII, XML and Binary. Read all about them on Wikipedia.
