I am repackaging Oracle 9.2 and have stripped out the Java runtime stuff which we are deploying seperately.

Does anyone know if you can change the temporary file settings location and amount of space to use from within the msi. This information is normally accessed after the application is installed via Control Panel - Java - General - Temporary Internet Files

I have chked out the Package database which has sorted out most of the questions I had. The reason I want to edit these settings is the location defualts to the user profile and is set to be an unlimited amount. This may cause problems with roaming user profiles if the folder gets too large.

Any advice welcome...Cheers Nik[8|]

Hey mate,

I repackaged 1.5.0_01 backalong and was concerned about the roaming profile thing so I set the cache location to C:\Windows\Temp in the deployment.properties file:


Haven't had any problems with it.. You used to be able to limit the cache size in older versions of the Sun JRE but I don't think you can in v1.5.0

You can test your package etc here.

Hope it helps,

The setting for the cache is deployment.cache.max.size=10m (to set it to 10MB). It is located in the same file.

Finally got a chance to test the theory out. The msi is vendor supplied and the deployment.properties file is written to the user profile by something other than the file table. So modifying it could prove to be a hassle.

Talked to the admin people and we are not currently roaming %USERPROFILE%Application Data\*.* so I have decided to leave it at the defualt settings for now.

Thanks again...Nik
