Java API

You can register your configuration against the DefaultConfigurationFactory class. It's optional and only required if you want to let users use the DefaultConfigurationFactory class to instantiate your configuration. For example you could write:

<cargo containerId="containerIdOfAssociatedContainer" [...]>
  <configuration class="" type="standalone">

Use the implementation element under the configuration element. For example:
