Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-1152) Connector portlet does not display all WebConnectors
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2005 14:05:18 GMT

Is this patch adding the ability to add/display tomcat web connectors 
from a Web Console that is managing Jetty?  If so, then I'm not sure we 
want to add this capability just yet.  The entire console needs to be 
reworked if we decide to support multiple containers simultaneously from 
a single console.

We will probably want this at some point in time so we should not lose 
it.  But I'm concerned that adding it now might just cause confusion for 
the user.  It would be one of the only portlets addressing management of 
  more than one container.  Most other portlets that work with the web 
container only interact with the container that is hosting the console 
application itself.

Also, nobody has come up with a scenario where a user would want to run 
two web containers.  If we do include this then we should at least 
ensure that the option to add tomcat connectors is not present for a 
jetty only configuration and vice-versa (not sure if the patch does this).

Nice work but it might be a little ahead of its time.
