    I want to take a snapshot of what the current domain is


    You will have to use the CLI


    bin$ ./jboss-admin.sh 
    You are disconnected at the moment. Type 'connect' to connect to the server or 'help' for the list of supported commands.
    [disconnected /] connect
    Connected to domain controller at localhost:9999
    [domain@localhost:9999 /] :take-snapshot()
        "outcome" => "success",
        "result" => {
            "domain-results" => {"step-1" => {"name" => "/home/anil/as7/jboss-as/build/target/jboss-as-7.1.0.Alpha1-SNAPSHOT/domain/configuration/domain_xml_history/snapshot/20110908-165222603domain.xml"}},
            "server-operations" => undefined
    [domain@localhost:9999 /] help
    For a list of commands available in the current context execute
    help --commands
    The resulting listing may depend on the current context. I.g. some of the commands
    require an established connection to a controller (standalone or domain).
    These commands won't appear in the listing unless the connection has been established.
    Here are some of the most common supported commands:
     cn (or cd)                - change the current node path to the argument;
     connect                - connect to the specified host and port;
     deploy                    - deploy an application;
     help (or h)            - print this message;
     history                - print or disable/enable/clear the history expansion.
     ls                        - list the contents of the node path;
     pwn (or pwd)            - prints the current working node;
     quit (or q)            - quit the command line interface;
     undeploy                - undeploy an application;
     version                - prints the version and environment information.
     add-jms-queue            - creates a new JMS queue
     remove-jms-queue        - removes an existing JMS queue
     add-jms-topic            - creates a new JMS topic
     remove-jms-topic        - removes an existing JMS topic
     add-jms-cf                - creates a new JMS connection factory
     remove-jms-cf            - removes an existing JMS connection factory
     data-source            - allows to add new, modify and remove existing data sources
     xa-data-source            - allows to add new, modify and remove existing XA data sources
    For a more detailed description of a specific command, execute the command with '--help' as the argument.
    Tab-completion is supported for the commands, just press the tab key to start.
    To use tab completion for operations requests start with './' or '/' and press the tab key
    which will list the available node types or names.
    If the operation request doesn't require a node path then start with ':' and press the tab key
    ('/:' and './:' are also possible).
    Operation requests are expected to follow the format:
    [node-type=node-name (, node-type=node-name)*] : operation-name ['('[name=value [, name=value]*]')']
    e.g. /subsystem=web/connector=http:read-attribute(name=protocol)
    Whitespaces between the separators are insignificant.
    If the operation doesn't require arguments then the brackets '()' are optional.
    Tab-completion for operation requests supports node types and names, operation names and the property names.
    [domain@localhost:9999 /] 


    I want to take the latest snapshot of the host.xml for a particular host


    Assume your host is called "master"


    /bin$ ./jboss-admin.sh 
    You are disconnected at the moment. Type 'connect' to connect to the server or 'help' for the list of supported commands.
    [disconnected /] connect
    Connected to domain controller at localhost:9999
    [domain@localhost:9999 /]  /host=master:take-snapshot
        "outcome" => "success",
        "result" => {
            "domain-results" => {"step-1" => {"name" => "/home/anil/as7/jboss-as/build/target/jboss-as-7.1.0.Alpha1-SNAPSHOT/domain/configuration/host_xml_history/snapshot/20110908-165640215host.xml"}},
            "server-operations" => undefined
    [domain@localhost:9999 /]


    I want to write the domain model or host model to the Command Line


    Assume you have a host that is called master

    [domain@localhost:9999 /] /host=master:read-config-as-xml


    Just for the domain


    [domain@localhost:9999 /] :read-config-as-xml


    How do I JPDA debug JBoss AS7 workspace?
