Hi,

Thanks for your work on this book, which I think is really good so far.

Are you planning to give some details on the configuration aspects of Storm? I find that this is not a completely obvious part of Storm, e.g. if I want a given bolt to be configured via a config file, where should it be? What is the hierarchy of configuration files? How do I configure things at the topology level vs component level without having to hardcode the values in my code, etc....

I probably wouldn't take more than a couple of paragraphs but they would help, especially the readers coming from Hadoop who know that they can use the XML files with the tool interface to configure a given job.

Thanks

Julien

Re: Configuration-related chapter
I suspect that will do something around that.

Over time, we've made our configuration simpler and simpler.
