dd-plist is a free and open source library that enables Java applications to work with property lists in various formats.
You can parse existing property lists (e.g. those created by an iOS application) and work with the contents on any operating system.
dd-plist also enables you to create your own property lists from scratch and store them in various formats.
dd-plist provides an API which mimics the Cocoa/NeXTSTEP API, providing access to the basic functions of classes like NSDictionary, NSData, etc.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the dd-plist utility on your Mac are available HERE.
dd-plist is a cross-platform utility capable of running on any operating system that comes with Java support (e.g. Mac OS X, Windows, Linux).
