Subject Re: [jira] Resolved: (QPID-30) Allow configuration of working/log directories written to by broker
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2006 15:29:28 GMT
The default is $HOME at present (amended from defaulting to $QPID_HOME as
this is often inappropriate) for both. qpid-run is not currently platform
aware (aside from detecting cygwin for path conversion). Have amended
qpid-run to default to use $HOME now. Happy for you to add platform
appropriate defaulting though, and add it to qpid-server.bat too (which I
haven't amended yet) ?

Regards,
Marnie
