Subject One True Way (TM) of handling configuration files
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2003 06:44:34 GMT

One thing that has annoyed me in several app-servers (e.g. Weblogic and =
JBoss) is the
way the server specific configuration XML files located in the =
WARs/JARs/EARs of the
"pure" J2EE application.  This hinders application portability and is =
generally messy.

My syggeestion is that in geronimo we should adopt a similar approach =
than the Orion
application server (, where the =
implementation specific=20
files with some default values are generated into a separate directory =
by the application server when a application is deployed on the server.=20
IMHO this has several advantages.

everyone in favor say ay! :)
