On-the-Fly would mean properties. Take a look at the package:
org.jutils.init  at 
It's in use in xmlBlaster anyway.

Or use the -D in the commandline.

Or use something like following for the hardcoded way:
Global glob = null;
Properties prop System.getProperties();

prop.setProperty("client.protocol", "SOCKET");
prop.setProperty("socket.port", "7607");
prop.setProperty("socket.hostname", "localhost");

glob = new Global(prop);
