Properties Files

Files containing metadata for database-connections as well as server- and application-wide settings.

Helma's property files are simple text files containing information e.g. about which applications to start, about the database connection, server configuration etc.

There is no general syntax of the various properties, however most of the time each line represents a property's assignment the way

propertyName = propertyValue

A line starting with a hash character # will be regarded as comment and thus ignored:

# This is a comment. 
This is no comment. # Neither is this

The following list contains all properties files used by Helma.
