Subject Re: Help needed with geronimo.sh
Date Thu, 26 Apr 2007 02:31:15 GMT
   I would like to set the property o.a.g.server.name=geronimo in
MainConfigurationBootstrapper. This will prevent accidental corruption
of 'var' directory. If the user did not create a geronim/var the server
will not start.

Thanks
Anita
