Subject Re: Possibly crazy idea about installable child instances
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2012 07:24:16 GMT
Hi JB,

That looks useful but I think it's for a different purpose.  I want something maven sets up
as part of the build, and I want the instance to be a fairly independent server.  Basically
I want the startup.properties for the instance to be generated from startup features in the
same way it is for a karaf assembly, but in the instance directory, and then the instance
files packed up as kar resources rather than packed up as a server assembly tar.gz and zip.

BTW installing an instance from a kar seems to work fine.... I made the resources for the
kar (i.e. all the instance/<foo> files) by hand but once made you can include it in
a karaf assembly and then it works fine.

 I'm going to make a kar to install it (i.e. all the etc/ and such resource files will be
in a kar under resources/instances/client/etc).

I forget about it :-)
