  • Set the properties from a script
    Setting your system properties in the startup script is ideal, because it ensures that you set the properties every time you start the server. To avoid having to modify the script each time you upgrade, the best approach is to create your own startup script that wraps the WSO2 startup script and add the properties you want to set, rather than editing the WSO2 startup script directly.
  • Set the properties from an external registry
    If you want to access properties from an external registry, you could create Java code that reads the properties at runtime from that registry. Be sure to store sensitive data such as, username and password to connect to the registry in a properties file, instead of in the Java code and secure the properties file with the secure vault.
