Configuration of the EPP wizard is accomplished by a properties file. By default the application looks for a file called in "eppwizard.properties" in the current working directory. This can be overridden by setting the system property "org.eclipse.epp.wizard.configuration" to point to another properties file. The properties file has the following structure (c.f. http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.epp/plugins/org.eclipse.epp.wizard/eppwizard.properties?root=Technology_Project&view=markup)
The key "model" denotes the location of the directory with the file "eppmodel.xml" (see EPP/Wizard/eppmodel.xml) as well as the required icon files.
The "outgoing" key specifies the folder for the outgoing link configuration (see EPP/Wizard/Outgoing links)
The file installerbuilder.properties configure the installer builder servlet, which assembles the actual installer files. By default the application looks for a file called in "installerbuilder.properties" in the current working directory. This can be overridden by setting the system property "org.eclipse.epp.wizard.installerbuilder.configuration" to point to another properties file. The properties file has the following structure:
# downloads directory containing template files downloads=/opt/epp # directory used for creating temporary download files tmpdir=/opt/epp/tmp # Number of entries in the installer cache (each entry uses about 5 MB disk space in the tmpdir) installer.cache.size=200
The installer cache size may be tweaked to allow previously assembled installers to be cached (thus preventing costly re-compression), at the expense of hard disk space
