Anyone here using JBoss 7? I've just started getting to grips with it,

experiences with it.
So far, the good: it starts up really, really fast. 1.7 seconds for an
empty container. I know the time to start an empty container doesn't
mean much, but that's certainly a lot faster than any previous version
could do it! Also, the way modules are now loaded on demand, so that i
don't have to worry about whether i need the 'default' or 'all'
profiles, or about doing any slimming.
The bad: they appear to have got rid of the idea of servers (as in
$JBOSS_HOME/server), which was something i have always leaned on very
heavily. It's not clear to me how you're supposed to manage a system
which has multiple completely independent applications which you'd like
to be able to run as separate processes (as a typical dev box does).
Running a standalone setup only appears to support one process per
machine, and running a domain setup rather implies that the processes
are part of a cohesive unit - you have to list them all in host.xml.
I really need to be able to take a project, build it into a WAR or EAR,
and deploy it to the app server as its own process, all pretty much
automatically. Needing to grub around in host.xml defeats that.
So far, i've written a shell script which is a replacement for
standalone.sh which should let me do this, but i haven't used it
seriously yet. I feel like i shouldn't be needing to replace
out-of-the-box scripts to do this.
<guessing>Maybe they figured it wasn't a too good idea to run multiple
servers from one installation directory because you might run into all
sorts of issues where you need an update of one installation and all
others are affected as well. I guess you now have to do multiple
installations, i.e. in different directories.</guessing>
