Subject Re: Porting complex WAS6 app to Geronimo 1.1
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2007 19:07:02 GMT
Hi David,

And very thank you for your answer. Yes, I think I'll create a small
ear that will bind this configuration URL for the server. I would like
to use Geronimo2, but it's too far from WAS6, that is the original
platform of this application.

FYI, original developers made the discussable choice to put all
configuration path to properties files in JNDI references. The only
pro I can see is that you can choose the directory you want for these
properties files, but damn! That give no clue about the content of the
files... Lack of configuration, etc. ;(

Thank you for your advice, David. Have a good WE.
