Description Dennis Gregorovic 2003-12-16 22:14:19 UTC
Description of problem:
There are at least two places in CCM where $CCM_HOME/work is
hard-coded as a default directory for saving data.

dev$ find src/ -type f -name *.java | xargs grep -l "work/"

However, $CCM_HOME/work has been deprecated in favor of $CCM_HOME/data
and $CCM_HOME/tmp.  So, what we should do is add two new properties:
waf.runtime.data_directory and waf.runtime.temp_directory, which
default to $CCM_HOME/data and $CCM_HOME/tmp.  Then we can replace the
occurences of "work/" with waf.runtime.data_directory.

Comment 1 Dennis Gregorovic 2004-02-27 23:21:31 UTC

The implementation is slightly different than what's mentioned in the
ticket.  Now there is a com.arsdigita.runtime.CCM#getDataDirectory()
method which is used by lucene. (SecurityConfig is no longer an
issue).  Internally, getDataDirectory returns ccm.home/data
