Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-971) simplify configuration file loading
Date Mon, 12 Apr 2010 15:04:42 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-971?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jonathan Ellis updated CASSANDRA-971:
-------------------------------------

    Attachment: 971.txt

Since nobody apparently actually uses the ability to change the configuration file (this isn't
exposed in our bin/ scripts, and nobody has complained) I've just left that out entirely,
renaming storage-conf.xml to cassandra.xml to be less generic.

I also removed the undocumented hardcoding of the log4j properties filename.  I think this
was added to prevent clashing with other log4j.properties bundled with jars that might be
on the classpath, so I renamed ours to log4j-server.properties [similar to how we are already
using log4j-tools.properties and log4j-junit.properties] to avoid this.

> Currently we can load the configuration file from (a) a full path specified by -Dstorage-config,
or (b) "storage.conf.xml" located anywhere on the classpath (filename may not be changed).
> I think we should figure out what The Right Thing is to do here, and then do it, instead
of trying multiple guesses in an effort to prevent ... what?
> ISTM that the java idiom here is, look for a default filename on the classpath, and allow
customizing that name w/ a system property, but when taking the property ONLY the filename
is customized, not the full path.  This is what log4j does, for instance.
