Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Developer's Guide

Overriding Configuration Properties

You can override the properties (config-property elements) specified in the ra.xml file of a resource adapter. Use the asadmin create-resource-adapter-config command to create a configuration for a resource adapter. Use this command’s --property option to specify a name-value pair for a resource adapter property.

You can use the asadmin create-resource-adapter-config command either before or after resource adapter deployment. If it is executed after deploying the resource adapter, the existing resource adapter is restarted with the new properties. For details, see the Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Reference Manual.

You can also use token replacement for overriding resource adapter configuration properties in individual server instances when the resource adapter is deployed to a cluster. For example, for a property called inboundPort, you can assign the value ${inboundPort}. You can then assign a different value to this property for each server instance. Changes to system properties take effect upon server restart.
