Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-557) smooth application upgrade/versioning
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2005 03:25:39 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-557?page=all ]

Aaron Mulder updated GERONIMO-557:
----------------------------------

    Fix Version: 1.1
    Description: 
There have been several requests for the ability to change fairly fundamental bits of application
configuration at runtime, such as which resource a resource-ref points to.  Currently the
only way to do this is to redeploy the reconfigured application, and changing this would break
a lot of our implementation and some of our philosophy.

Perhaps a better way to approach this kind of problem is to version applications, and have
a process for seamlessly switching between versions of an application.

So, to change the target of a resource-ref, you'd configure a new "copy" of your app with
the new target, deploy it, and undeploy the old version.
