Subject Re: conf/conf.d Directory + port 4200

Thanks for your answer!

Yes this is with 1.0.0.

If TomEE only writes to the conf dir if files are not present, it's easy 
to work around.

Thanks for the hint regarding the services. However, I'm not completely 
sure how to handle them. What does the admin service actually do? Is 
this part of Tomcat or added by TomEE? Is the hsql service required for 
persisting sessions or other stuff in the JavaEE stack? I noticed that 
tomee.xml contains 2 hsql data sources: "My DataSource" and "My 
Unmanaged DataSource".

If there is documentation for this, please don't hesitate to refer me to 
the right place! I might have missed it in my confusion.
