Configure Alfresco Process Services using a properties file named activiti-app.properties. This file must be placed on the application server’s classpath to be found.
Additionally, the properties file is available with the following options:
An activiti-app.properties file with default values in the WAR file (or exploded WAR folder) under the WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/activiti-app folder.
An activiti-app.properties file with custom values on the classpath. For example, the WEB-INF/classes folder of the WAR, the /lib folder of Tomcat, or other places specific to the web container being used.
The values of a configuration file on the classpath have precedence over the values in the WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/activiti-app/activiti-app.properties file.
For the Alfresco Process Services user interface, there is an additional configuration file named app-cfg.js. This file is located inside the .war file’s script directory.
At a minimum, the application requires the following settings to run:
An accurate Hibernate dialect - see Hibernate Settings
All other properties use the default settings, and this will be allow the application to start up and run.
