COM.volano.Main runs the VolanoChat server.

Synopsis

java COM.volano.Main [ options ]

Description

COM.volano.Main runs the VolanoChat server by starting up its three embedded servers: the chat server, the administrative server, and the servlet runner. See the [5.0] VolanoChat Server chapter for a complete description of the server and its architecture.

Options

file
Specifies the path to the VolanoChat server properties file that defines the server's configuration. If no file is specified, the server looks for its properties in the file conf/properties.txt, relative to the current working directory. Any relative file paths in the server properties are assumed to be relative to the install.root system property. If install.root is undefined, relative file paths in the server properties are assumed to be relative to the location of the properties file itself.

Environment Variables
