when working with wildfly in a cloud/paas environment (like openshift, fabric8, docker, heroku et al) it'd be great to have a git repository for the configuration folder so that writes work something like:
- git pull
- write the, say, standalone.xml file
- git commit -a -m "some comment"
- git push
(with a handler to deal with conflicts; such as last write wins).
Then an optional periodic 'git pull' and reload configuration if there is a change.
This would then mean that folks could use a number of wildfly containers using docker / openshift / fabric8 and then have a shared git repository (e.g. the git repo in openshift or fabric8) to configure a group of wildfly containers. Folks could then reuse the wildfly management console within cloud environments (as the management console would, under the covers, be loading/saving from/to git)
Folks could then benefit from git tooling when dealing with versioning and audit logs of changes to the XML; along with getting the benefit of branching, tagging.
