oh yes. but its complex, currently complex enough that only once you 
have tens of machines do people bother to automate it.

the problem is really the difference in configuration between systems 
stops you just moving things around.

-have a different properties file for each hostname,
-use LDAP to configure every cluster
-use smartfrog ( ) to merge deployment and 
configuration. (I'm part of this project)

Properties files just dont scale.
