      Description

      Admin Console has "Load Defaults" button on various configuration screens. Example: Edit JMS Host, Transaction Service.

      Only some of the fields on those screen get initialized to the default value. The names of the fields which get initialized, and their default values, is not clearly mentioned in the online help for Admin Console.

      Example:

      • Configuration - server-config - Transaction Service
      • Modify value of Transaction Log Location to: $ {com.sun.aas.instanceRoot}/logs.new
        - Save, and then click on Load Defaults button.
        - It doesn't restore the default value of Transaction Log Location to: ${com.sun.aas.instanceRoot}

        /logs

      • Other fields are restored to the default value.

      This is expected behavior, but is not documented.

        Too late to fix in 3.1.

        Under consideration for fixing in 3.1.1. However, this issue is of indeterminate scope and it might well require considerable effort to track down and describe every instance of Load Defaults in the Administration Console.

        Changed description of Load Defaults button everywhere it appears, providing more detail about what "loading defaults" really means. Committed in svn revision 47759.
