      Description

      I'm trying to build a configuration system to be shared between our Java applications. I therefore want to have optional configurations included from the main configuration file read by DefaultConfigurationBuilder

      <configuration fileName="local-configuration.xml" config-optional="true" />

      I have found that if the sub-configuration file is invalid the error is silently ignored. The same without config-options="true" results in a ConfigurationException to be thrown (which wraps a ConfigurationRuntimeException which wraps the ConfigurationException which wraps the SAXException).

      I believe that the behaviour is incorrect. The sub-configuration file should be skipped if not found, but any errors found when parsing the existing file should be logged.
