File System Naming Convention

view story

http://www.unix.com – Hi, I am installing a new RHEL 5 application server containing JBOSS along with other specific 3rd party applications. I know that this usually gets installed in /opt but I was thinking of installing these on a new separtate lv / file system instead. i.e. Code: /<my_new_FS_name> rather than /opt Can anyone explain why I should not use such a naming convention as an alternative to /opt.
