Subject Re: deployment without credentials
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2009 18:16:02 GMT
I believe the offline deploy command only works on the local machine.

Basically it starts up enough of geronimo to do the deployment.

Since if you can do this you can start all of geronimo, muck up all  
the config files, erase the server, install malicious plugins by file  
operations and editing config.xml, etc etc, I don't see the point in  
requiring any credentials for mere offline deployment.  At best it  
will obscure the possibilities for direct damage.
