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.

<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>

A novel and intriguing idea! An installation is only 82 MB, and can
probably be reduced to almost nothing with the proper use of symlinks.
Worth investigating!
