Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-4398) Server should not fail to startup if application fails to start up
Date Fri, 29 May 2009 02:22:45 GMT


David Jencks updated GERONIMO-4398:

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.2)
                   Wish List

IMO if implemented this needs to be configurable policy rather than hardcoded behavior.  At
the opposite extreme, in my experience tomcat provides no indicate that an app didn't start
when you deploy it, so its pretty hard to know you should take action.

If you've assembled a custom server, you may well want it to shut down if it can't start completely.
 The lack of distinction between server plugins and application plugins means you would need
some way to distinguish "port 1099 isn't available, this server wont be manageable or possible
to shut down" from "my experimental app couldn't find its config file and threw an exception".

> When an application fails to start up, the server will not come up. The server should
simply ignore the failing application and start up anyway, so the user has a chance to remove
the failing application without having to edit config.xml
