The wolips.properties file tells WOLips (and the Ant based build) where to find the various parts of WebObjects and friends. This replaces the wobuild.properties files used by earlier version (pre-New Hotness) of WOLips, though the wobuild.properties file still gets used by ant builds of the Wonder frameworks and applications.

The location of this file differs by operating system:

OS X: /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/WOLips/wolips.properties
Linux: /home/<user>/Library/Application Support/WOLips/wolips.properties
Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Library\Application Support\WOLips\wolips.properties
Windows 7: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\WOLips\wolips.properties

The wolips.properties file should be created automatically, but if this does not happen, it can be created manually (e.g. with a text editor). Example contents of this file (modify to match the locations on your machine):

# Directory path that contains Library/Frameworks/[Apple WebObjects frameworks]
wo.system.root=/System

# Directory that contains [user WebObjects frameworks]
wo.user.frameworks=/Users/chuck/Library/Frameworks

# Directory that contains [Apple WebObjects frameworks]
wo.system.frameworks=/System/Library/Frameworks

wo.bootstrapjar=/System/Library/WebObjects/JavaApplications/wotaskd.woa/WOBootstrap.jar

# Directory that contains network shared [WebObjects frameworks]
wo.network.frameworks=/Network/Library/Frameworks

# Directory for javadoc lookup by Eclipse
wo.api.root=/Developer/ADC%20Reference%20Library/documentation/WebObjects/Reference/API/

# Directory path that contains Library/Frameworks/[network shared WebObjects frameworks]
wo.network.root=/Network

# Directory that contains unmanaged unversioned global jars available to WebObjects runtime (generally a bad idea)
wo.extensions=/Library/WebObjects/Extensions

# User home directory
wo.user.root=/Users/chuck

# A directory containing [non-Apple WebObjects frameworks]
wo.local.frameworks=/Library/Frameworks

# A directory where WebObjects applications are installed
wo.apps.root=/Library/WebObjects/Applications

# Directory path that contains Library/Frameworks/[non-Apple WebObjects frameworks]
wo.local.root=/

Example on Windows:

wo.system.root=C:/Apple
wo.system.frameworks=C:/Apple/Library/Frameworks
wo.bootstrapjar=C:/Apple/Library/WebObjects/JavaApplications/wotaskd.woa/WOBootstrap.jar
wo.extensions=C:/Apple/Local/Library/WebObjects/Extensions
wo.user.root=C:/username
wo.local.frameworks=C:/Apple/Local/Library/Frameworks
wo.apps.root=C:/Apple/Library/WebObjects/JavaApplications
wo.local.root=C:/Apple/Local
