CRC Properties Configuration

The file contains a number of properties that need to be modified to reflect your environment. Some of these properties are used during the installation of the CRC cell while others define how the CRC will function once it is installed. For the purpose of this document we have grouped them into two categories; (1) Required Environment Properties and (2) Optional Performance Properties.

  • The Required Environment Properties are those whose variables have to be modified with information that is specific to your environment. The editing of these properties is defined in the Required Environment Properties section.
  • The Optional Performance Properties are those properties that will change how the CRC performs. You can choose to edit them to your needs or to use the default settings.

Open file

The following steps outline how to open the file. This file will remain open as you move through the next few sections editing all the required properties.

1. At the command prompt type the following:

Linux Command
open YOUR_I2B2_SRC_DIR/edu.harvard.i2b2.crc/etc/spring/

Windows Command


Linux Command:  open /opt/i2b2/edu.harvard.i2b2.crc/etc/spring/
Windows Command:  C:\opt\i2b2\edu.harvard.i2b2.crc\etc\spring\
