RE: [xmlblaster-devel] Explicitly setting xmlblaster.properties file location in the code

Hi Marcel,
   I believe the command you provided below is to start the XMLBLaster
server.  I need to be able to explicitly set the location of the
xmlBlaster.properties file in my xmlBlaster clients.  I created my
windows executables using Jbuilder.  The executables contain
xmlBlaster.jar, so modifying the properties file there will result in
the IP address of the server essentially being hard coded.  What I need
is a way to set the IP Address of the server and the protocol to be used
without having to recreate the executables.  I can do this if I run my
executables from the directory in which they are installed as I have
placed a copy of the properties file in the same directory.  However, if
I try to invoke one of these executables from a M.S. Access macro, the
properties file in the directory that contains the executable is not
found, and the executable is not able to connect to the xmlBlaster

Hi Kelvon,

java org.xmlBlaster.Main -propertyFile x.properties

does the magic.
You can also replace the property file in xmlBlaster.jar with your own
customized one.

How did you create your native executable?
