Our product is an Enterprise server application which consists of 2 servers both running on the same machine:
I've already migrated the MAIN server to JBoss AS 7.1.1 and we're now considering moving the web console operations to JBoss 7.1.1 as well as a Domain configuration. However, after doing some reading on Domain configurations, I'm no longer sure this is even a good idea.
At its simplest form I was imagining that I would have 2 nodes one for each server and that by putting them both in a Domain config. in AS7 in a single machine that it would be easy to configure them to share the same database, and have a more centralized location for all configurations while running on separate JVMs. I also understand that since the MAIN server and the web admin console server are 2 different applications this means I would have 2 "Server Groups" each consisting of 1 node each. But It seems like most of the examples I've read about on Domain configurations are for high availability and/or clusters.
I would like to know if Domain configuration is recomended for our type of solution and if so, are there any examples? or articles on this type of configuration?
