Portal service configuration

I am writing a portal service and would like to use the System Administration --> System Configiguration --> Service Configuration to store some initialization parameters. I was successful in putting values into the service config via the portalapp.xml file:


<property name="myConfig" value="true"/>


What I need to know is how to read those properties from my service. I see an IServiceConfig interface that has a getProperty method, however I don't know how to implement/instantiate it. Also, if this is the correct interface, do I need to add a SharingReference in the <application-config> of the portalapp.xml?

    Each service will have a init method and the serviceContext will be passed to you by the Framework.

    You can read the properties from the service context. Similar to this.

      * Generic init method of the service. Will be called by the portal runtime.
      * @param serviceContext
      public void init(IServiceContext serviceContext)
        String value = serviceContext.getServiceProfile().getProperty("myConfig");
