Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7136) Change default paths to ~ instead of /var
Date Thu, 01 May 2014 23:20:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7136?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13987162#comment-13987162

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-7136:
-------------------------------------------

There's a few minor niggles here:

# We don't want to just use ./ since that will do different things depending on cwd when user
invokes bin/cassandra, but 
# I'm pretty sure Java won't convert ~ notation into The Right Thing, especially on Windows.
 So if we want it to Just Work out of the box, we might need to say, "leave it blank for us
to programmatically determine your home directory."
# The debian package won't be able to just use cassandra.yaml from the tree; we'll need to
sed /var/ paths back in

> Defaulting to /var makes it more difficult for both multi-user systems and people unfamiliar
with the command line.
