      Description

      Many system options and features are controlled via system properties, which are found in the following files:

      • bootstrap.properties
      • rrd-configuration.properties
      • libraries.properties
      • opennms.properties

      Additionally, system properties may be set via the Java command line in opennms.conf

      As these files change between releases, mostly rrd-configuration.properties and opennms.properties, users are forced to merge their configuration files during the upgrade process.

      In order to make upgrading, and configuration management easier, I propose the following:

      • Keep the existing property files in place with the recommended defaults
      • Allow users to override the properties set by the distributed via their own property files
