That’s done.  I tried a build script symlink task, which worked, but the build script tar turned it into a copy (since it is Java based and Java doesn’t like symlinks as much as unix?)  Anyways, at some point we can switch to unix tar and then it will work (unless consumers or the installer dont like the tarred symlink?)


Note, this is in 4 places: API, WS WEB-INF/bin, UI WEB-INF/bin and the installer uses it too…

Many software packages have the windows script: whatever.bat, and the unix script: whatever.  Then when you document things, you say: whatever -arg1 -arg2   (works in windows and unix)
However, grouper has gsh.bat and, so we have to document things two ways:

gsh -loader  (windows) -loader (unix)

Im thinking we should add a unix script in addition to (for backwards compatibility) which is just gsh (same script as  Then we can just document it as:

gsh -loader

And it will work in windows and linux.

OK, this is probably not important enough to discuss, but just mentioning...  :)

Thoughts?  +1's?  -1's?  :)
