      Description

      Code patch for discovering the base URL for Pentaho from an environment variable. This allows "auto-discovery" of the host machine when paired with a simple shell script to set the environment variable when the container app starts up (tomcat or jboss or whatever).

          Simple patch for retrieving the baseURL from an environment variable.

          Use the following bash shell snippet in a startup script to set the environment variable...

          IP_ADDR=`ifconfig | grep 'inet addr:'| grep -v '127.0.0.1' | cut -d: -f2 | awk '{ print $1}'`
          export PENTAHO_BASE_URL=http://$IP_ADDR/pentaho/

          This changed in 3.8 where the base-url is no longer used.
