Configuration framework

I am currently desinging a configuration framework in java. Basically there is a need for several GUI's for what was done by hand. Several of these configurations stores(xml,db etc) are already processed(read from) from within their modules.

My question is what should be the scope of a configuration framework in such a situation??
Should I use object to relational/xml mapping here??
How will it effect the overall system??

Put your configuration variables into .properties files.

Then read those files with a PropertyResourceBundle class.

And then you're done.

have a look at the jakarta commons website
there is a library called commons configuration
which does basically what you are talking about (in terms of different storage options)

all you need to do is make some generic way of creating gui's based on the data
