Author Topic: Using databases to configure Nodes and Drivers instead of config files....  (Read 2310 times)

I need to pass the Drivers and Nodes their configuration dynamically. Since the environment has no "disk" in the true sense JPPF has no where to load a configuration file from making the command line parameter worthless. Is there a tutorial on how to start up and configure Drivers and Nodes directly in Java?



PS. Another way to look at this is it would be nice to embed the Drivers and Nodes and configure them on the fly from other sources such as databases.

Hello John,

JPPF now has the possiblity to get the configuration from a source other than a properties file. The configuration guide provides a detailed description of how it can be done. The -Djppf.config.plugin option gives you a great degree of flexibility for where you can get the configuration for your drivers and nodes.

As an example, this feature was contributed by one of our users running JPPF on Amazon EC2, and allowed him to get the configuration from Amzon S3 storage.

With this, I don't see anything that would prevent you from getting the configuration properties from a database.

I hope this helps.
