I didn't write that tutorial, but 'PropertyName' is a PEAK class for 
hierarchical names similar to Java configuration property names.  A 
PropertyName is basically a dotted name used to reference configuration 

Usually, you want property names to be prefixed with some kind of 
package-specific or application-specific identifier.  So, without actually 
looking at the tutorial, I'm guessing that 'simplecmpApp' means 'simple 
composing application' and is the prefix the tutorial's author chose to use 
for the example.
