Manage Karaf shell.name by branding

                 Key: KARAF-426
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-426
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jean-Baptiste Onofré

Currently, when you start Karaf (or connect remotely to a karaf instance), you get a shell
looking like:


The "root" is the karaf instance name and could be changed using the karaf.name property defined
in etc/system.properties file.

The "karaf" part is hard coded in Karaf and not yet linked to users defined (especially when
you enable some JAAS support using a database or LDAP backend :)).

We can consider this "karaf" as a shell name, and we could consider this as linked to the

Karaf branding is looking for a org/apache/karaf/branding/branding.properties file containing
a welcome property.
This property is used by the Karaf branding support (at bootstrap) to display the welcome

I propose to extend this branding.properties file by adding another shell.name property defining
the shell name.
If the property is not found or null, we fall back to "karaf" as it is currently.
