    Unable to read system properties file using -P

    Wendy Schmitz Newbie

      I am using JBoss 7.1.1.Final and I have a system properties file that I am trying to pass into JBoss using the -P parameter at startup, this is how I invoke standalone.sh:

       

       

      ./standalone.sh -P=../myown.properties
      

       

      However the properties are not resolved in my standalone.xml, I can see this when I go onto the Admin console to examine my datasource. This is the configuration in standalone.xml:

       

       

      <datasource jta="false" jndi-name="java:jboss/datasources/AEDS" pool-name="AEDS" enabled="true" use-ccm="false">
                          <connection-url>${xdb.connection.url}</connection-url>
                          <driver-class>${xdb.driver.class}</driver-class>
                          <driver>${xdb.driver}</driver>
                          <transaction-isolation>TRANSACTION_READ_COMMITTED</transaction-isolation>
                          <pool>
                              <min-pool-size>10</min-pool-size>
                              <max-pool-size>50</max-pool-size>
                              <prefill>false</prefill>
                          </pool>
                          <security>
                              <user-name>${xdb.user}</user-name>
                              <password>${xdb.password}</password>
                          </security>
                          <statement>
                              <prepared-statement-cache-size>32</prepared-statement-cache-size>
                              <share-prepared-statements>true</share-prepared-statements>
                          </statement>
                      </datasource>
      

       

      Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
