Can't find whois.init file

Hi, good morning!,

i downloaded recently the Whois project, but the /tools directory has no whois.init file. Also cannot find it through all the project… Build is succesful. Would you kindly advise how to find it?

root@RIPE:/home/maxim/whois/tools# ls
hazelcast.xml precommitcheck ripedb.cnf

root@RIPE:/home/maxim/whois/tools# find / -name “whois.init”
find: ‘/run/user/1000/doc’: Permission denied
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

I tried to rebuild, rerun tests for several times, but nothing
neither it is in GIT:

Good Morning!
Sorry for the late reply.
We purposely got rid of that file, because we no longer need it.

please use this command:

/usr/bin/java -Dwhois -Djsse.enableSNIExtension=false -Dhazelcast.jmx=true -Xms1024m -Xmx8g -Dwhois.config=properties -Duser.timezone=UTC -Dhazelcast.config=hazelcast.xml -Dlog4j.configurationFile=file:log4j2.xml -jar whois.jar

If you want prefer to use that file you can get it from the previous tag (82c3dcca):
