Subject [jira] [Created] (AMQ-5471) Configuration server for Network of Brokers
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2014 19:02:13 GMT
Hadrian Zbarcea created AMQ-5471:

             Summary: Configuration server for Network of Brokers
                 Key: AMQ-5471
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Broker
            Reporter: Hadrian Zbarcea
            Assignee: Hadrian Zbarcea
             Fix For: 5.11.0

Brokers use the xbean configuration to start which is usually found in ./conf other other
places on the local disk. In a NOB topology however it is hard to distribute the configuration
files and maintain them across brokers especially with a growing or elasticly changing number
of brokers.

ActiveMQ already supports reading the xbean configuration from an http;// URL, so it would
be very helpful to have a rest service that manages the configuration for all the brokers.

I started such a service on [github|] but plan to
contribute it to ASF once it's in a decent shape, in a couple of weeks or so.

The service uses the local file system and appropriate conventions to store all the relevant
broker configuration resources (e.g. could be generated with ./bin/activemq create <instance>
minus certificates probably). I plan to enhance it later to support a git repository for the
configuration, so that it's versioned, so that an operator could roll out a new NOB topology,
or roll back to the previous configuration.

Feedback appreciated.
