    Adding a new facility to start a hornetq cluster to hornetq-maven-plugin

    Yong Hao Gao Master

      To allow for more HA test scenarios in version tests, it needs to extends the capability of hornetq-maven-plugin. Currently the plugin can start a live and a backup.

      The new facility will be implemented based on this plugin and have the power to start a cluster. The idea is to add a new configuration parameter to the plugin:

       

       

      <hornetqConfigurationBaseDir>target/test-classes/clusterA/</hornetqConfigurationBaseDir>

       

       

      The plugin will find all server configurations under this "hornetqConfigurationBaseDir" and start them up. Each server configuration is stored in a sub-directory under it.

      To let the plugin correctly identify each node and its backups the sub-directories have the following name conventions:

       

       

      All live nodes configurations are stored in 'live' sub-directory, like:

       

       

      .

      └── target

          └── test-classes

              └── clusterA

                  └── live

                      ├── node0

                      └── node1

       

       

      All backups are stored in 'backup' sub-directory. The sub-directory for a live's backups is named the same as the live itself. Each backup configuration will be stored under the above dir.

       

       

      A full example would be:

       

       

      .

      └── target

          └── test-classes

              └── clusterA

                  ├── backup

                  │   ├── node0

                  │   │   └── backup0

                  │   └── node1

                  │       └── backup0

                  └── live

                      ├── node0

                      └── node1

       

       

      The plugin parses this directory tree and starts the node0 and node1 and their backups accordingly.

       

       

      Any comments?
