Configuring GUMS

All the configuration of GUMS is in the following files:

  • ./var/war/WEB-INF/classes/gums.config - holds all the configuration information for GUMS, including the database parameters, the policy, which VOs GUMS is going to contact and which gatekeeper will use which map.
  • ./var/war/WEB-INF/classes/ - this is the configuration for log4j, which is a well known library for logging in java. We will not discuss the details here: GUMS comes with this file preconfigured, and you can refer to the logging section for more details. If you want more information about how to modify this file, refer to the log4j documentation at
