I’m thinking of having the keystore and truststores for Openfire located on removable media, to make it more convenient for me to have someone replace these in remote offices. I was thinking that this would be trivial, since there is a configuration property for setting the paths of truststores and keystore.
However, I found that both the documentation  and the source code  tells me that it is only possible to configure a path relative to the openfire home directory.
So my questions goes:
a. Is there any hope of getting this property changed to allow absolute paths outside the openfire home directory?
b. If I change this myself so I can configure absolute paths, is there any security issues in doing so?
I guess I just don’t understand why we are not allowed to specify absolute paths.
Thank you for reading and best regards,
