You can also configure VelocityTools2 via a properties file. Here's the same configuration as the XML example, but done in properties format:

tools.toolbox = request,session,application
tools.request.property.xhtml = true
tools.request.toytool = ToyTool
tools.request.toytool.restrictTo = index.vm
tools.request.custom = org.mine.CustomTool
tools.request.custom.randomProperty = whatever
tools.session.property.create-session = true
tools.session.property.create-session.type = boolean
tools.session.map = java.util.HashMap
tools.application.date = org.apache.velocity.tools.generic.DateTool
tools.data.version = 1.1
tools.data.version.type = number
tools.data.date = Mon Sep 17 10:08:03 PDT 2007
tools.data.date.class = java.util.Date
tools.data.date.converter = org.apache.commons.beanutils.locale.converters.DateLocaleConverter
tools.data.isSimple = true
tools.data.type = boolean
tools.data.foo = this is foo.
tools.data.bar = this is bar.
tools.data.dataKeys = version,date,isSimple.foo,bar,dataKeys,switches
tools.data.dataKeys.type = list
tools.data.switches = true,false,false,true
tools.data.switches.type = list.boolean
