    Getting properties to evaluate

    Andrew Boyd Novice

      Hi All,
      How do I get something like

      mercury.incoming.directory=${jboss.server.home.dir}/farm/incoming
      


      to evaluate the ${jboss.server.home.dir} ?

      I have a mercury.properties file that I keep in MyServer/conf that has the above property setting.

      However, when I start up jboss my mercury.incoming.directory is not getting set correctly.

      Here are some of my properties from the web-console:
      mercury.incoming.directory ${jboss.server.home.dir}/farm/incoming
      ...snip...
      jboss.server.home.dir C:\work\Projects\jboss-3.2.6\server\mercury-01
      

      As you can see jboss.server.home.dir is set but ${jboss.server.home.dir} is not being evaluated.

      What do I need to do to get JBoss to evaluate the property settings?

      Thanks,

      Andrew
