I would like to share my experience about JBoss 7.1.1 and remote deployment with the maven JBoss As7 Deployment Plugin and gather your feedbacks
I used both of them during one year with a domain controller, about 20 host controllers and about 50 server groups.
I should admit that today I'm not very happy with it and I'm still looking for the ideal model
The main interest for us is to deploy EARs from different Jenkins Maven builds and launch different integration tests.
We have encountered different issues:
- First of all, sometimes they are some freezes. We are using the 'undeploy' goal in the Maven clean phase, and the 'deploy' goal in the pre-intergration-test Maven phase.
Sometimes, we don't know why, when several projects are deploying at the same time, we are blocked with Maven looping eternally on the ''Authenticating against security realm: ManagementRealm'' message.
What is funny, is that the domain controller admin console is completely out, host controllers are not displaying correctly in the 'Server' list and nobody can deploy any component without a complete restart of the domain controller.
- We have tried as well the 'execute-commands' goal of the 7.3.Final version and 'deploy' commands but apparently it doesn't work when specifying server groups parameter.
I'm currently migrating our infrastructure to EAP 6 with a premium support to see if it will be better but I should admit I've got some doubts.
Anyone having experience with multiple remote deployments to a JBoss domain controller ?
Did you encounter these issues ?
