Subject installer installation path
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2005 05:38:40 GMT
I'm working on making the installer building a little more compatible 
with maven and have a question.  Originally we build a jar file in 
assembly that had the geronimo server contents at the root (e.g. 
repository, var etc were top level in the jar).  After a bunch of 
complaints we moved to a zip file with a root directory 

The installer was built in the days of the jar file and like it is 
splatting the geronimo server directly into the install directory you 
choose.  I'm wondering if it would be appropriate to always install 
into <installation path chosen in 
installer>/geronimo-${geronimo_version}/repository etc.

This would simplify things a bit, but I think it might be a good idea 
and is certainly more consistent with the zip distro.

Any thoughts?
