Cut and pasted from an email:
-c – anyone interested, let's have a debate.
In AS7 -c foo.xml would be a shorthand for --server-config=foo.xml
I don't like that because:
a) It's only a rough translation of what -c meant in AS < 7. People
would have to read docs to figure out how to use it, so is there much
b) There's no clean equivalent for domain.sh. It could be a shorthand
for --domain-config=foo.xml but it could also be a shorthand for
--host-config=foo.xml. So which?
(I could be convinced to support -c=foo.xml as a shorthand for
-server-config=foo.xml and --domain-config=foo.xml if I feel people
understand the issues and still want it. I've had conversations with
people about it before, but they've gotten sidetracked when other things
came up. And I could be much more easily be convinced by a nice patch.)
So does -c become -dc and -hc then?
I think this also dovetails into a discussion about how do I clone an instance and start it up 3 or 4 times on a IP address. Customers have done this for sure, and I do this in labs/cookbooks?
