Hi Andy,

Thanks for your comments :)

I'm wondering what you mean by "isn't located". Does this mean that the post
installation shell script must not use 'id' but '/bin/id' ?

Yeah, the jar file is no longer available (but we deliver native and archive
installer instead) and the documentation is not really up-to-date...
Sorry about that... :(

You're proposal is interesting. Maybe it can be worth filing a Jira. I like
this idea of optional (with a default value if not passed to the command
line) parameter.

The "Basic Users Guide" goes on to describe how you'd set the port etc. It

Once again. The website is not up-to-date with the latest release.
Thanks for the heads up.

We need to spend less time coding and more time on the documentation.
