Subject Re: Using an alternative delegator
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2006 14:19:16 GMT
Your best bet to to override the definition of the default delegator.  
The easiest way to do this is by editing entityengine.xml and  
pointing it to a different datasource.

One way to accomplish this is by writing a new startup script which  
renames the entityengine.xml file to the one you want.

1) Create 3 different configurations: entityengine-production.xml,  
entityengine-training.xml, entityengine-testing.xml and configure each.

2) Create a script mystartofbiz.sh which either takes a parameter to  
know which one to use i.e. training

- cp entityengine-$1.xml entityengine.xml
- use the code to actually start the program.
- invoke your script ./mystartofbiz.sh production

This would be the easiest, and safest method right now.
