# ****** JBOSS AS 7 SETTINGS *********
# ************************************
# These properties should be uncommented when using JBoss AS 7
# *** NOTE For EXTERNAL STANDALONE CLIENTS only (does not apply to clients running in a servlet within the same app server) ***
# JBoss AS 7 requires a remote client to place additional properties
# in a separate file named Workpoint ships
# with a copy of this file in the [WORKPOINT_HOME]/conf directory.
# That file is mandated by the JBoss remoting classes so make sure that
# it is included in your classpath in addition to this file.
