This setting is not used for locating Profound.js modules or files when running an application in a Workspace. In that case, only modules/files within the Workspace directory or a sub-directory can be used. Paths within a sub-directory must be specified as relative to the Workspace directory. If a program in a Workspace is called via PJSCALL or a proxy program, the IBM i library list is used to search for modules/files.
If using a subdirectory in a workspace, the workspace name and the nested directories/folders must be added to the pathlist in order for this to work. For example, add something like this to the pathlist: /workspaceName/folder1/folder2/...
This property is used to provide the default pathlist. The pathlist is specified as an array of directories to search.
pathlist: [ "dir1", "dir2", "dir3" ]
The concept of a pathlist is similar to a library list in an IBM i job. Note, when Profound.js modules are called from Genie, the pathlist is inherited directly from the library list of a Genie job and the "pathlist" configuration setting is ignored.
The pathlist is used to search directory paths for Node.js modules within the modules directory of the Profound.js instance. It is used by APIs, such pjs.call(), when a module name is unqualified.
When calling a module via a URL alias, for a Profound.js instance installed on an IBM i system, the pathlist is used to locate database files located within libraries. The module will use the entries in the pathlist as if they are libraries in a library list. Using the pathlist in the example above, the module will have access to the files located in the "dir1" library (if the library exists) without using qualified filed names.
