14.26. Options

This tab is in the Database tab.

14.26.1. Editing Options

The Options tab allows you to change the values of options that control the behavior of JRaceman. To change the value of an option, find the field for the option you want to change, then click in that text field and enter the new value. When you press enter or move your mouse out of the field, the new value is stored in the database.

14.26.2. Options

You can change the following options in the Options tab:

  • Snapshot Directory 0: the directory in which Snapshots from the Database.Backup tab are stored (for the first line). This value can also be changed in the Database.Backup tab.

  • Snapshot Directory 1: the directory in which Snapshots from the Database.Backup tab are stored (for the second line). This value can also be changed in the Database.Backup tab.

  • URL to web registration page: the web location for the JRaceman servlet being used to do web registration for this database, typically of the form http://www.yourdomain.com/servletname.

  • Email Address for web registration: the email address to use on the web registration pages when telling the user who to contact for help or special requests.

  • ID of Meet for web registration: the ID of the Meet to be used by the web registration servlet.

  • MailHost for web registration outbound email: The name of the host to which we send output email for web registration (such as the account creation confirmation email containing the password).

  • URL to payment info for web registration: The URL to put into the web summary page that points to a page with instructions for payment.

  • URL to waiver info for web registration: The URL to put into the web summary page that points to a page with instructions for waivers.

  • Is web registration open?: If set to "false", closes web registration. When registration is closed, users can still log on but they can not make any changes. If blank or "true", web registration is not closed.

  • Now past late registration deadline?: If set to "true", includes the late-registration label on the registration web page. If blank or "false", the late-registration label is not used.

  • Label to use under title for late registration: The label to use under the title of the registration web page when the "Now past late registration deadline" flag is set.

  • Duration precision (Results fraction digits): The number of fractional digits to display to the right of the decimal point for results. After changing this value, you must restart clients in order for them to start using the new value. This number only affects the display of the results; the internal data is stored with as much precision as it is entered. For example, if you import data from FinishLynx that has three digits of precision, but you have not yet changed this option, the data will be displayed with two digits of precision; but when you change this value to three and restart the client, you will see all three digits of precision for the previously entered data. If blank, defaults to 2.

For all of the web registration parameters listed above, if you are using multiple war files and thus need to use context-path-specific parameter values, you will need to set those values using the Context Options tab instead.
