I'm not a JBoss application engineer and not a Java programmer, either. I'm dealing with JBoss and Tomcat Middleware from a System Engineering perspective.
We are operating large JBoss Domain environments for customers, would like to put together the set of application properties (text file(s) with key/value pairs) pertaining to each application and deploy it from a JBoss Domain Controller to Server Groups completely separate from the application content. The application properties should then get unpacked as JBoss modules on the Slave Servers, e. g. in JBOSS_HOME/modules/System/layers/conf/ch/CUSTOMER/APPLICATION/main/.
- Is it possible at all to get this working?
- How do we have to put together the property file(s) so then can be deployed like the application content but will end up in the above module structure?
- JAR, WAR or EAR?
- JBoss Subdeployment?
- Which XML description files do we have to supply, if any?
Thanks in advance for your ideas, hints or even experiences.
