Subject Re: Is it a good idea to delete / move the default configuration xml file ?
Date Mon, 21 Jul 2014 16:58:43 GMT
I recommend against deleting or moving *-default.xml, because these files
may be supplying reasonable default values for configuration properties
that you haven't set in *-site.xml.  We also put defaults into the code
itself in case a configuration property is found to be completely missing,
but I'm not aware of any actual testing of deployments that have deleted
