    SAR's in Jboss7

    darren hartford Expert

      Hey all,

      I was reviewing the https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/Admin+Guide, particularly the Datasource configuration section, and I do not see any mentions of also allowing configurations in the SAR's.


      Datasource configuration and dynamic login/security configurations are common for me to put in SAR's that are deployed beside the binary applications (EAR or WAR), and can be customized per environment (DEV/TEST/PILOT/LIVE) or per client/configuration setup without needing to modify the server itself nor the binary application.


      Does this capability still exist?

          The ability to deploy a .sar exists in AS7. However, the ability to configure a datasource within a deployment doesn't currently exist. See this http://community.jboss.org/thread/164554?tstart=0 for a discussion about this.

            Thanks, that links to basically the same challenges (and they added JMS which I also do on one application through SAR).


            However, there seems to be lack of (clear/suported) direction/support towards a 'migration' approach for people who do follow the SAR approach to manage resource configuration seperate from BOTH the application and the server (where a single server is likely to support multiple apps/configurations and rather than having a single large configuration for ALL applications to allow each application SAR to configure itself and adjust/mature without impacting other running applications).


            The .cli approach mentioned sounds good in theory, but leaves current SAR users fumbling.
