I have a web application which we need to deploy across different application servers as a .war file. The web.xml contains some configuration information that needs to be specified at deployment time .
The 2 ways I am looking at is :
ENV-Entry tag (Then refer to the variable in the code using JNDI)
Initialization Parameters of servlet
I just wanted to know whether there is a mechanism on the various J2EE application server to update these propeties in the web.xml
file. Basically I don't want to specify these values before generating the war file. I want the deployer to install the war file on the application server and then change these values from the administrative console. Is this possible.
I looked at websphere 5 Express but could not find a way to change the values in the web.xml. The only thing I found out was how to map datasource names to resource-refs.
Or is there any other way to store this information and change them at runtime
Thanks in advance.
