Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1086) Location of derby.properties file
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2006 13:36:13 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1086?page=comments#action_12370180 ] 

Thorsten Möller commented on DERBY-1086:

I tried what is recommended by this thread but it doesn't work well. In particular, setting
the property derby.system.home to the dir where the derby.properties file is located and point
to another dir in the JDBC connect URL shows the effect that the log file is created in the
dir referenced by derby.system.home even if the property derby.stream.error.file is set in
derby.properties. It seems that this property is ignored in this case.

> As with (at least) version the configuration file "derby.properties" must be
located in the directory where all databases will be stored. It should be possible to have
this file anywhere in the filesystem for flexibility. Most projects which use Derby as one
component use a central directory where all configuration files reside. 
> Then, for startup of Derby there has to be a property which tells Derby where to find
the properties file, for example "derby.properties.file.path". If that property is not set
on startup the system might fall back to the current behaviour, i.e. try to find the properties
file in its database directory.
