Subject Storing partition configuration in system partition
Date Fri, 23 Jun 2006 12:52:59 GMT

as I am currently trying to customize the JBoss server SAR I stumbled 
over what I think are a few problems with it:
1. The whole configuration lives within the SAR where it is rather 
inaccessible. Using an XMBean with the xml persistence one could move 
the configuration at least to conf/xmdesc.
2. The partition configuration allows only a simple name and constructs 
a partition root of "cn=NAME" from it. Furthermore there can be only one 
3. The default configuration has a few problems:
- the Krb5KdcEntryFilter references a class which no longer seems to 
exist in RC3:
- several directories are configured as ${reims.jboss.dir}/something. As 
${reims.jboss.dir} is non-standard, this dumps the databases into 
$JBOSS_HOME/bin/${reims.jboss.dir}/... which doesn't seem to be what one 
usually wants.

Regarding #1 and 2: I'd still regard the XMBean solution as only the 
second best, as configuring the server is quite clumsy this way. The 
structure below the system partition seems to suggest that - at least at 
one point in time - the storage of the configuration of partitions (and 
possibly most of the other options) in the system partition was 
considered (cf. ou=system,ou=configuration,ou=partitions). Is it 
possible to use this for the SAR? If yes, is it possible to dynamically 
reconfigure the partitions?

Regarding #3: is there currently a maintainer of the SAR package? I'd 
like to offer a few patches, in particular to fix the mentioned 
problems, make it JBoss 4.0.x compatible and fix the darned 
IncompatibleClassChangeError in conjunction wuth log4j.
