Subject Re: programmed aliases.conf add/modify?
Author michael welsch
Thanks, Eddie,

your right, you never know when you will need it.
In the meantime I wrote a little dirty java app that makes it.
I can involve it in the setup like this:
propertyEdit -f <path to aliases.conf> -kv <new_alias> <new_database>
it checks for existing alias and modifies/creates it.

To satisfy your nosiness:
My database app can be installed as desktop or client/server model.
And I don't want the user to have to edit aliases.conf. But as I
must expect firebird already on the server, I can't just overwrite
aliases.conf. This way I can include the firebird setup if it is not
already present and prepare aliases.conf afterwards.

Thank you for the interesting link - you never know when you'll need
it ;-)

By the way: adding a new alias to aliases.conf doesn't require a
reboot as for my expirience.
