Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-2069) FileInstall creates ./load by default
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 06:53:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2069?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12855300#action_12855300

Marcel Offermans commented on FELIX-2069:
-----------------------------------------

So let's not create any folder (configured or default).
As far as I'm concerned we can then stick with the default being "load". I really dislike
creating files or folders that are useful for users in /tmp as that is a "scratch" folder
for non-human use.
The user should be warned if the (default or configured) folder does not exist (in which case
FileInstall should keep monitoring the filesystem because the user might still create it manually
afterwards).

These changes will break backward compatibility, so we would have to bump the version to 3.0.0
but that's no problem.

> If not configured, file install bundle creates ./load when it starts. Either it should
not create any directory and wait for user to configure it or it should create a directory
in tmp folder.
