Subject Issue - configuring the binary distribution
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2005 17:15:45 GMT

I want to open up a discussion for binary distribution.

Currently we are not packaging the plans in the binary distribution. 
This will likely cause some issues with the users as it will be 
inevitable that the configurations will need changing.  Examples will be 
SSL certificates (i.e. keyfiles) have an AJP connector or 
not...have a Realm that covers the entire server, or even Virtual Hosts. 
   These are all typically server level configurations and much less at 
an application specific level. I would say most users who want to use 
Geronimo in production *will* be having a need to change the 
configuration, and I think rebuilding from source is not acceptable.

We need to make the ability to alter these objects and easily change the 
config without the need to download the entire source base.

I think this is a critical path issue that we need to address before a 
1.0 release as it will cause huge complaints IMHO.

My .02...I think that packaging the plans with the assembly (and maybe a 
maven script or other to easily enable a redeployment (cli?)) is a short 
term solution and something we need to come to terms with, but we should 
also discuss our long term goals around this.
