PropertiesBadge

This is a marker interface whose presence enables access to the java properties database; it implements no methods. Its presence or absence in a class is all that we're interested in. In this case, its prescence means that the class should be trusted to get properties from java.lang.System, which includes such things as username, home directory, java JVM version, etc. Note that this class is declared public, which is not very secure.

From Greg Frascadore, JavaPro May 1999.
