Subject RE: [torque newbie] Torque in source tree of web app?
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2005 06:35:35 GMT


the usual organisation is like that:
- put torque.jar and the jar for the database driver into WEB-INF/lib
- I tend not to include the source files into the web application itself,
but into an extra source folder outside of the web app. Reason is that one
does not need the sources for running the app, so why would one want to
increase the application size by including the souces ?
- the WEB-INF directory is really the place for the configuration files. I
usually create a subfolder WEB-INF/config and put the configuration files
there. In my opinion, the only real alternative is to put the configuration
files into some fixed path on the server (like /etc/sysconfig/<myapp>), but
whether this is desirable or not depends on many things. For the beginning
I would recommend WEB-INF/config.
- I would not include maven in the web app. Build the web application from
outside, as you suggested, and hand out the db scripts. There is too much
which could go wrong if things are not set up as you think they might (or
should) be, e.g. the database user used to access the database later might
have not the permission to create tables etc.
