Description

Currently, it is cumbersome to configure TXM home directory path to a different place as the one set at TXM installation time (for example to share corpora setup between different machines or because of limited access rights on guarded self service computers). A FAQ entry provides a procedure to help: a) move the directory to another place b) change TXM advanced settings to point to that directory c) re-import or re-load all corpora. The c) stage is the more cumbersome to the user.

Solution

  • A) re-use the TXM code to backup corpora at TXM re-install to help the user to automaticaly do the c) stage when she wants to change the TXM home directory location
  • B) change the TXM Advanced settings UI scenario in the following way:
    • remove the '/TXM' suffix of the TXM home directory path in the 'TXM home directory' field value
    • add code of A) to the code that is called when the field is updated
