Re: [jetty-users] Jetty 9 {java.home}/work not being honored

Thanks.  My opinion is having the work dir makes it easy to setup on servers shared by many users or there are multiple jetty installs.  Convention over configuration usually makes for a better design so it seems worth bringing back work dir support... will vote for it.

But all is not lost.

If you are deploying your WebApp via a Jetty context deployable, you can set the specific temp directory for your specific webapp this way...

<?xml version="1.0"  encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-//Mort Bay Consulting//DTD Configure//EN"
<Configure class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">
  <Set name="contextPath"><Property name="foo"/></Set>
  <Set name="war">/var/web/webapps/foo.war</Set>
  <Set name="tempDirectory"><Property name="jetty.home"/>/work/foo</Set> <!-- Set this -->

Note: that this functionality is a bit different than ${jetty.home}/work
As ${jetty.home}/work was the parent directory for the tempDirectory.

If you feel the ${jetty.home}/work is important still, please, file a bug asking for it back.
Note that any implementation for this would be for ${jetty.base}/work, not ${jetty.home}/work
