Environment Tab
Previous Topic  Next Topic 


This tab allows environment variables to be instantiated when the service is run. This is particularly useful for Java and other applications that rely on a custom environment.  Note that the order of entries in this panel is significant - environment variable definitions are evaluated in top-down order.




Button

Purpose

Promote (Up Arrow)

Allows an environment variable to be promoted in the list of environment variable definitions.

Demote (Down Arrow)

Allows an environment variable to be demoted in the list of environment variable definitions.

Insert

Inserts a new environment variable at the currently selected point in the list of variables. These take the form of a Name and Value. Environment variable expansion can take place by including other variables inside % signs. For example, if the name of the environment variable is CLASSPATH, its value might be %PATH%:C:\Somepath. If the environment variable PATH is present in the list or globally then the CLASSPATH variable will inherit the PATH variables value. Note that environment variables are ordered. Duplicate environment variables can be present. The maximum length of an environment variables name or value is 32KB. Empty environment variables can be assigned (ie. no value).



Append

Adds a new environment variable at the end of the list of variables.

Edit

Edits the currently selected environment variable. Select the variable you want to edit by clicking or double clicking on it.

Remove

Deletes the currently selected environment variable.
