playing around with JBoss (AS7) in domain mode I have seen that several processes are started when a domain is started
ProcessController -> HostController (which is either the DomainController or just a HostController) -> all App Servers (marked with autostart= true)
I have also recognized that when I kill an JBoss AS 7 App Server -> it will be automatically restarted by the HostController
and when I kill the JBoss AS 7 HostController that one will be automatically restarted by the ProcessController
As I haven't found any description about this feature I'm wondering if this is a supported feature (or is it just the way it is today implemented and in future this behaviour can change).
I think it is pretty cool, because in past we used the javaservicewrapper to monitor our JBoss processes and now JBoss seems to support that itself
Regards && Thanks for your help
Yes, this is part of the responsibility of the ProcessController and HostController. So unless it's a controlled shutdown the processes will get restarted.
