Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-535) handle fully-qualified paths in ServerInfo.resolvePath()
Date Thu, 30 Dec 2004 16:26:03 GMT
handle fully-qualified paths in ServerInfo.resolvePath() 

         Key: GERONIMO-535
     Project: Apache Geronimo
        Type: Improvement
  Components: core  
    Versions: 1.0-M4    
 Environment: fedora core 2
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_04-b05)
geronimo svn Revision: 123724
    Reporter: toby cabot
 Attachments: absolute-file.patch

It would be useful to me (and hopefully others) to be able to specify fully-qualified pathnames
in configuration files.  For example, if we want to integrate Geronimo with Linux systems
we'll want to write logs into /var/log/geronimo or thereabouts.  I noticed that when I tried
to use fully-qualified paths in configuration files they were resolved relative to Geronimo's
home directory anyway.  This patch changes ServerInfo so that if a filename begins with a
"/" it's treated as a fully-qualified path, and if it doesn't it's resolved relative to Geronimo's

Please note that I haven't tried this on a Windows system, so I'm not sure what the effect
is.  It works great on Linux.
