Subject Re: [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4424) Move Create Plugin and Assemble Server portlets to new Tools category
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 17:36:37 GMT
I need a lot more convincing before I think this move and some of  
those proposed in 4423 are a good idea.  More specifically...

I think these operations are conceptually similar:

- deploying new apps
- installing plugins
- extracting plugins
- extracting servers
- turning plugins on and off.

Plan creator sort of belongs nearby since you'd use it to get ready to  
deploy a new app.

I think monitoring needs to be its own category, together with  
(future) cluster management.

I don't think Tools is a good category name.  The entire admin console  
is a bunch of tools.... how do you distinguish the ones you are  
putting in tools from all the others?  "Debug Views" always seemed  
like a strange name but at least it indicated the category pretty well  
-- stuff you'd look at when you were trying to root around inside the  
server and needed hard to find info because something wasn't set up  

I'd prefer to see discussion on the dev list with the entire plan you  
have for organization.
