We are basically building a testing module which helps to test JBoss server, on situations such as non availability of servers. For this can anyone suggest a method by which i can remotely bring up and down the JBoss server from test code?
Also i need clues on remotely deploying EAR files from test code , monitoring Server parameters remotely. I would appreciate any help in this regard however small it be.
Will JBoss remoting be any help in this situations?
There is no framework like this provided as an open source product by JBoss that I know of. If look at the testsuite under JBossAS, can see some code that does some similar behavior (starting/stopping JBoss locally and doing programtic deploys).
JBoss Remoting would only be of help in providing a remote call layer to do custom code that does this.
