In Alpha2, the local container type was introduced. Currently there are two implementations:
JBoss AS 5.1 local
JBoss AS 6.0 local
The term local is defined as:
Remote + lifecycle
I'd like to recommend using the term "managed" rather than "local" to describe this combination.
It's true in most cases that the container is going to be on the same machine. However, with the proper SSH setup, it's possible that a command could be issued to start a container on a remote server. The focus here is not on the fact that the container is local, but that it's lifecycle is managed.
I propose we rename these containers as follows:
JBoss AS 5.1 managed
JBoss AS 6.0 managed
I'm open to another name as well, but I don't think that local is appropriate for this purpose.
