Major changes in the documentation section

Today we rearranged documentation pages in the 'Docs' section. The old 'Vine Toolkit 1.1 Guides' document is a base for a new two guides: Vine Admin Guide and Vine Developer's Guide. The first one is more about configuration and deployment of provided framework and the second for developers wanting to add new functionality to Vine ( both application and service layer will be covered ).

Currently we are in the middle of the reorganization and if you want to get previous version of 'Vine Toolkit 1.1 Guides' please download its pdf version.

Vine configuration - HSQL DB tuning

By default Vine uses HSQL database. In general the default settings are used, but if required it is possible to change them after Vine installation.

The HSQL Vine DB configuration file is located here:

$PORTAL_HOME\webapps\vine\WEB-INF\vine\persistence\database\vine.properties

Inside there are numerous HSQL DB settings.

One of it is particularly interesting:

hsqldb.default_table_type=memory
