Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Reduce 2.2 server footprint by making some current plugins optional
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2008 12:18:22 GMT
Shall we provide a page, it has some shortcut buttons, such as "Turn On/Off
EJB Support" "Turn On/Off JMS Support" , that while users do not need some
functions, they could conveniently turn off those functions they do not
need, in the meanwhile, it will reduce the server startup time.
