Customizing Properties files

Properties files are available for all major Business Process Server components. You can use these files for customization of contact details or your date format; or for internationalization of labels, messages, and so on. For information on internationalization (or localization), see Localizing Business Process Server. A list of Properties files for each Business Process Server component is given in the following table.

All these properties files are stored in the OEBPS_HOME\conf\properties directory. The format of all these files is as shown below:
Key=Value
For each key that is to be customized, you can specify its value. For example, if an organization wants to refer to a group of people working together on a task as a "Team", instead of "Group", then that organization can edit the bpmportal.properties file and change all "Group" references in values to "Team". For example, change Create_Group=Create Group to Create_Group=Create Team, change GroupList=Group List to GroupList=Team List.
Note: While modifying any properties file, change only the value.
