Subject Re: Re-categorize the items in navigation pane for G2.2
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2009 05:55:10 GMT
Hi Jeff,

This organization doesn't quite make sense to me.

I can see something like

 >App Server
java system info
server logs
thread pools
web server
ejb server
jms server
DB info
DB Manager

Jar aliases
JMS Resources (why not under applications??)
Database pools (again, why not under applications?)

Deploy New
Plan Creator
System Modules
Application Ears
Web App Wars
Ejb Jars
J2CA Connectors
App Clients

Security Realms
Certificate Authrotiry
Users and Groups (this is not useful for real apps since it only looks  
at the default properties file security realm which hopefully no one  
will ever use in production)

JMX Viewer
JNDI Viewere
Classloader viewer
Dependency Viewer
LDAP Viewer (We don't install ldap by default, and this is a pretty  
weak app compared to e.g. ApacheDS Studio)

I'm not sure about
Apache HTTP since these are instructions that IIUC don't do anything  
in the actual geronimo server.  I really don't know where to put them.

I've tried to put stuff in better categories (e.g. j2ca connectors are  
applications) and to put the most important/ most likely to be used  
choices first.

Since there is some question (at least from me) about a good order I'm  
not sure if this should go in 2.2.  If you like what I suggest and no  
one else objects I guess I'm OK with it but I'd also be OK with just  
rearranging stuff in 3.0.
