None Missing G4Data files 

Forum: Physics List

From: Frank Gaede <Frank Gaede>

Recently the DESY ILC group has started to submit geant4 based simulation jobs for detector optimization to the grid. In doing so we realized that geant4 based programs using a physiscs list that comes with geant4 will run without the G4Data files (G4LEVELGAMMADATA, G4LEDATA,...) actually beeing visible (mounted) without any complaint or warning. I would consider this behaviour dangerous as it is not so straight forward how one can ensure that the cross section data actually has been used in the program in a distributed computing environment. The least one expects is a warning like "G4LEVELGAMMADATA points to an empty/unreadable directory" or similar. Is this a bug or a feature that has some justification ?
