Applying logging and override properties to Corticon Studio and its built-in Server

The Studio and its built-in Corticon Server can change behaviors based on properties that you can customize in the Override properties file [CORTICON_WORK_DIR]/brms.properties. The most commonly used properties that are overidden by Studio users are provided so you can just uncomment them. You can specify name-value pairs for any setting described in the section Configuring Corticon properties and settings If you later want to revert to the original Server behavior, you can change your settings, comment out all your overrides, or even clear all the content of the override properties file. Also see the topic Changing logging configuration

Applying override changes

When you save the changed settings files, and then restart Studio, your preferred settings are in effect.

Using an alternate location for the override properties file

You can choose to point Corticon Studio to a preferred location of the brms.properties file.
To set an alternate location of the override properties in Studio:
1. The file must exist before you can point to it. You can copy the default file located at the Server's installation root, or you can just create a new file and give it your preferred name, such as my_brms.properties. Save the file at your preferred location, such as C:\preferences\.
2. In Studio, choose Window > Preferences, and then click on Progress Corticon.
3. Enter or browse to the override properties file you created, as shown:
When Corticon starts up, it will read your properties file last, and thus override default settings with your settings.
Note: Property settings you list in your brms.properties replace corresponding properties that have default settings. They do not append to an existing list. For example, if you want to add a new DateTime mask to the built-in list, be sure to include all the masks you intend to use, not just the new one. If your brms.properties file contains only the new mask, then it will be the only mask Corticon uses.
After editing and saving your overrides file, restart Corticon components for their changes to take effect. The properties in these files are described in detail in the following topics.
