Subject Re: Running multiple activemq instances on the same server

Ozan is correct, that wiki page is in error; "activemq-admin create " 
does the simple job of copying basic config files for a new instance.

When i ran it against my installation, which includes a number of 
additional config files for families of Camel Routes, and a custom 
properties file (because we've externalized a lot of parameter values 
into properties file and use Spring's PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer in 
our xml), it isn't very useful - it doesn't copy the entire contents of 
<$ACTIVEMQ_HOME>/conf, so our custom config files would need to be 
pulled in manually.

For me, it's actually easier to do a filesystem copy of the entire AMQ 
tree and hand-edit the ports in our properties files.

Also, note that when "activemq-admin create" copies the xml files, it 
encodes the ">" wildcard character as "&gt;". This doesn't appear to 
cause any runtime problems.
