Currently Infinispan servers cannot be plugged with executor services for the Netty master and worker threads, which makes them hard to manage in an app server environment where the app server might want to provide its own executors.
This might also require re-thinking how Infinispan servers are configured which currently rely on a bunch of properties. A typed approach would be welcome here.
In Lisbon, we had an interesting discussion around this but in the context of Infinispan core itself, how this is configured, how it has components injected that might be managed by an app server. He has some ideas based on the work he did for Weld, so maybe these can be applied to Infinispan servers too.
