Description Christopher Schultz 2014-10-02 14:07:51 UTC
To facilitate dynamic deployments where a jvmRoute is set e.g. using a system property, an empty jvmRoute attribute should behave the same as having no jvmRoute attribute set.

Hmm... while looking at the code to propose a patch, I found that the StandardEngine constructor actually looks for a "jvmRoute" system property.

This enhancement might not need to exist.

I checked, and the jvmRoute system property is properly-documented in the "System Properties" page of the configuration reference.

It might help to mention this in the <Engine> documentation for jvmRoute. Changing to a documentation bug.
