Mark Little commented on JBTM-2081:

I think your idea of requiring it for JTA or JTS is a good start. Beyond that I wonder if we could infer these default values (e.g., JTA implementation) by what's in your class path? Maybe a separate JIRA?

> I noticed this originally when doing the Android port, but now again when doing vert.x: at some point over the years we appear to have moved to a model where the properties file must be present (e.g., in class path or CWD) or we exit. I'm not sure why we do this given that every property has a default value anyway.
