OpenEJB System Properties File

OpenEJB and TomEE are really configurable in particular through system properties.

What is not so known is these system properties can be read from several places. The order is important, it means if the second place provides the same property than the first one, the first one will be omitted.

Here how it works:

  • JVM system properties: -Dxxx=yyy

  • user the file $\{user.home}/.openejb/

  • instance conf/

Note: generally you place in the user system properties file the contant configuration (check my openejb version for instance).
