A way to do equivalent to System.getProperty() visible to Thread and lower only?

I want to have something akin to System properties but have them visible only to a thread/threadgroup and all threads/groups below it. Is there any way to do this? Can it be done with System properties?

You could try a ThreadLocal object and put a Properties object in it. Actually if you want the object to be inherited by child threads that it creates, an InheritedThreadLocal object would be the thing to use.

What do you need them for?

Sounds to me that you might benefit from rethinking your design - system properties are basically global variables, and therefore should be used *very* carefully.
