Hi harish, all

If you want to manage your Stanbol Configuration not via the Felix Webconsole but via configuration files you can use the "Sling File Provider". The following text is copied from [3]

You can also use the Sling Maven Plugin [1] or configure the Sling File Provider [2]. As there is no documentation here the needed steps to setup the Sling File Provider

0. Install the "Sling File Provider" Bundle (not needed as this is included by default) 1. Configure the "sling.fileinstall.dir" property: You can add this to the "{stanbol-working-dir}/stanbol/ file" or parse it as a system property '-Dsling.fileinstall.dir={path-to-dir}' when you start stanbol. 2. Create the referenced Folder

After that the "Sling File Provider" will automatically install/update/delete bundles and configurations added/updated/deleted in that folder.

I use this for the configuration of the "" server. as it makes it really easy to upgrade Stanbol as it separates the configuration from the Software.

An other Tip: it is also possible to move the "datafiles" Folder to an other directory by providing a custom configuration for the "org.apache.stanbol.commons.stanboltools.datafileprovider.impl.MainDataFileProvider" component.

I hope this helps Rupert

You can create a "configbundle" that will store you engines/chains/etc configurations and apply them when build and start a new server.

It's really simple and useful.

This bundle is an example of such :

I am changing the minimum token size parameter in Stanbol configuration tag in admin console. But the keywordxtraction engine is not picking up the change. Any clues?

Is there a way for me to save my engine chains, engine instance information that gets stored in the 'stanbol' folder? If I update an engine, I am removing the stanbol engine to make sure that the changes are picked up correctly.? Dropping solr index zip is OK but redefining engine chains again is an inconvenience.
