Subject [jira] [Commented] (JAMES-1376) Config should belong to their modules, shipping should only contain templates
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 12:49:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13210224#comment-13210224

Ioan Eugen Stan commented on JAMES-1376:

First I would like to correct a mistake about conffiles: Debian Policy requires that they
are specified in a special file inside the deb-archive called conffile. They do not have to
end in conf, so that should be up to us. Files that end in conf are more suggestive to me.

I also agree with the fact that stuff  that james users/admins should not modify should be
embedded in jars. I'm not sure about database.properties though, from what I know, you specify
the db connection url there.  

My general thought on this is that we should export to the users as little configs as possible,
with sane defaults.

> The proposal is:
> - Move the default configuration to their own module (smtpserver.xml to smtp module...)
> - Have some templates (smtp.xml.template ) shipped so a administrator can override the
smtp.xml with the provided template. We should use the files https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/james/app/trunk/src/main/config/examples.
This has a benefits that these rich configured files will be used and reviewed along the recent
> @Ioan, I wonder if the *.xml.template would work with JAMES-1343?
