I'm looking to move the configurations (/application/web-inf/classes/meta-inf/*) to a different location like TOMCAT_HOME/shared/. For a precedence, see Alfresco.
The reason/intent is to allow binary updates without impacting/managing the configurations, particularly when you build a new dcma-webapp from sourcecode.
Are there any guides/information on this, or if there is a different approach used by the developer team such as process/approach. Also, some basic things like how to modify user-login (for testing just want to keep the ephesoft/demo approach), modify used database and where to put the jdbc, and what configurations I need to be careful from an open-source/CE development environment versus an Enterprise deploy (for those that need that feature, I currently do not...yet ).
p.s. if you have any other gotchas you want to share, great. For example, there was a number of System Environment Variables I saw created using the installer, not sure if those need to be setup on a fresh box when testing dcma-webapp from source-build only.
