When upgrading to 4.0.2, I was told to set directories in teamserver.properties like this:

com.ibm.team.repository.db.jdbc.location=C\:/IBM/JazzTeamServer402/server/conf/ccm/derby/repositoryDB

When setting up tomcat as a service, it wants these as:

com.ibm.team.repository.db.jdbc.location=C:/IBM/JazzTeamServer402/server/conf/ccm/derby/repositoryDB

Is there an issue of C\: vs C:?

thanks

It should work either way. Since it is a properties file, the colon character is a special character and it is usually escaped (preceded with a backslash) when it is in a property value.

However, from past experience I haven't seen any problems when the value has a colon that is not escaped. But to be safe, you can use the file path with an escaped backslash.
