Users of WebSphere Virtual Enterprise (WVE) can utilize their On Demand Router's (ODR's) to generate the plugin-cfg.xml file to be used with their WebSphere HTTP Plug-in module installed in an HTTP server such as IHS. But, did you know that you can set custom properties on the ODR to influence the settings used in the plugin-cfg.xml file? Here's how:
To change the default plugin-cfg.xml values that the ODR uses simply navigate to Servers > On Demand Routers > on_demand_router > Java and Process Management > Process Definition > Java Virtual Machine > Custom Properties and click New to create a new custom property.
You can find a list of the values that can be set in the WVE Information Center web site here.
Here are a few of the values that you might find yourself needing to customize:
Don't forget, after making any changes (like adding a new value) you'll need to stop and restart the ODR JVM for them to take effect. Also, don't forget to synchronize the configuration the node(s) where the ODR's live if you don't have automatic configuration synchronization enabled.
