Subject Re: [jira] Reopened: (JS2-281) *.xml in jetspeed-security-*.jar cause problems
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2005 22:18:22 GMT
All,

I have been looking a bit into what David Jencks
suggests here.  We could indeed write a custom
deployer for Jetspeed.

1. Custom JBoss deployer that would ignore jetspeed
configuration files (OJB and Castor for data binding).
2. Move OJB and Castor files into JETSPEED-INF.  This
change could be quickly implemented as the location of
the configuration files location is injected through
spring assembly.

I believe that 2. is an acceptable solution.  What do
others think?

Regards,

David Le Strat.
