How to Set Application Initialization Options


Note: This feature is available in Capstorm application versions 10.56.6 and above.

Capstorm applications allows you to add supplementary Java options. These options serve to dynamically alter the operational parameters of the application prior to its initiation. One frequent utilization, which serves as an example throughout this article, is the facilitation of user-driven control over memory allocation for any of Capstorm’s applications. This capability gives users the control to finely calibrate the memory resources dedicated to the operation of Capstorm’s  applications.

Configuration File Creation and Placement

Note: Application must be restarted for these configuration files to be applied.

Step 1 – File Creation and initial template setup:
  1. First create a XML file named “AppLoader.xml”

Step 2 – File Placement:

Two recommended placement options:

  • Option 2: Inside of one of Capstorm’s application installation directory there should be a directory called “config”. You can also place this configuration file in the “config” directory.
