Customizing the Viewer RI

The viewer Reference Implementation can be configured using properties defined at runtime. These properties allow for easy manipulation of the Viewer RI functionality without having to modify and compile the viewer source code.

When the Viewer RI is run for the first time settings are persisted using the Java Preferences API. The location of backing file is platform dependent.
