This functionality was removed from Alfresco in 5.0.b.


Basic Configuration Details


Configuring the JCR-RMI extention is performed by the modification of a simple properties file (jcr-rmi.properties).  The file is located in the source code tree at /extention/config/alfresco/extention/jcr-rmi.properties

  # ##################### #
  # RMI JCR Configuration #
  # ##################### #

  rmi.jcr.binding.servername=localhost
  rmi.jcr.binding.port=1099
  rmi.jcr.binding.name=javaContentRepository

Overriding Default Configuration


The best way to override the JCR-RMI configuration is to put a properties file in the classpath before the jar which loads the extention /alfresco/extention/jcr-rmi.properties.
This avoids the need to recompile the extention or the webclient package.  This also ensure that the configuration alterations will persist between deployments.

Modification of war files either through explosion or recompiling for a given target is practiced by many but is inconsistent with the initial design goals of the technology.  Overriding the configuration at the server is the best practice.


tomcat


In tomcat this can be accomplished by putting the file (and folders) in the common/classes  folder.


jboss


In tomcat this can be accomplished by putting the file (and folders) in the conf folder.
