is it meant to? this is micro container stuff, not really anything to do with HornetQ
If you don't have anything helpful to write, you don't have to reply.
Anyway I solved it by moving the systemProperties file to under /deployers.
i was simply pointing out that its a microntainer question not HornetQ and I (as a HornetQ developer) don't know whether it should or not. next time i wont point you to the correct forum
