Moving glassfish install

When I setup a new server virtual machine it's not unusual for me to install something in one place, then decide later that I don't like that layout, and start moving directories around. That almost always causes me trouble, and I ran into problems today when I moved a working glassfish install from /A to /B - after the move glassfish hung on startup. Fortunately, I was able to figure it out. Here's the trick if there are any other frickjacks out there that also like to pointlessly make things hard for themselves - just erase the felix osgi bundle cache files under glassfish/domains/domain1/osgi-cache/felix/. Those files cache the path to osgi bundle jars at the time of the last glassfish startup.
