There is a command-line option '--localBrooklynProperties' that can point
to a separate file outside this location. At present we
don't support a different location for the .brooklyn folder as it is
hard-coded, or auto-create it, but those could be useful features.

The specifies locations, and will need to be edited
with your cloud identity and credential configured in the correct place.
there is documentation on how to do this on the web, and in the sample file
itself. Make sure you save the edited file back to the .brooklyn folder in
your home directory.

No, the YAML tab is used to input a blueprint, written using the CAMP YAML

The Catalog tab should show a list of available pre-configured applications
you can launch, similar to the image in the quickstart page you linked
above. Check that your .brooklyn folder (in your home directory) has a file
called catalog.xml now. This is what is used to populate that tab. With the
file from the quickstart page there should be two exaple applications, both
web clusters.

All - Do we not have another catalog.xml file with a wider range of
applications? I thought the default should list more than the two webapp
