Subject RE: Environment variables, are they really needed??
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2003 17:58:40 GMT

This is a basic unix question, not specific to tomcat.  Without going
into technical details, I would say environment variables are one way to
define these properties.  There are other ways, e.g. in your
configuration files.
