JAR File's config.xml

From Documentation

JAR File's config.xml

A JAR file could contain a configuration file that will override the default configuration of a ZK application. The file must be named as config.xml and placed under the /metainfo/zk directory. Of course, the configuration specified in WEB-INF/zk.xml has higher priority. It will override the configuration specified in /metainfo/zk/config.xml.

By use of config.xml, a JAR file could change the default configuration without a user's notice, such as adding a desktop listener, setting a library property, and so on. For more information, please refer to ZK Developer's Reference: Packing Code.

DOCTYPE restriction

Since 10.0.0

Starting from ZK 10, the xml parser used by ZK declares disallow-doctype-decl to true. This prevents the use of DOCTYPE declaration in xml files, such as zk.xml, lang-addon.xml, config. xml, etc. This is a security measure to prevent XXE attacks using <!DOCTYPE ...> as vector.
