We do this at penn to manage the various builds with the various envs:


Not sure if it is easy enough for you to get up and running, but worth a shot.  Ear / war are just zip files, so whatever build tool you use, you can just zip up what you want in there J

Yes, this is confusing.  I found that you need to comment out this line to disable it.  Setting it to false doesn't do anything.

When building the UI using ant and source tar file the comes from grouper.api.


It has several lines like: log4j.appender.grouper_error.File = ${grouper.home}logs/grouper_error.log.


In the there is a comment that says to set “replace.grouper.home=false” so that grouper.home is not replaced with grouper.folder.


I tried that but my UI’s log4j.properities is being built with the grouper.folder value and not ${grouper.home} as I expected.


Am I miss reading this comment in


#By default the Grouper API file references a System property

#grouper.home. Before building / deploying the UI you should ensure that your

#application server e.g. Tomcat has a System property called grouper.home set*

#or you should replace ${grouper.home} with a valid path. The property below

#will cause ${grouper.home} in to be replaced with the grouper folder

#defined below. This is OK when building and deploying on the same system, however,

#if you are making a WAR file to deploy else where you should not rely on this mechanism.

#* Start your application server with a -Dgrouper.home=<grouper dir>
