Project Information

 

- Roadmap

- Issue Tracking

- Source Code:

     - Authoritative master: https://github.com/jbossas/console

     - Most recent: https://github.com/jbossas/console/tree/develop

- Hacking the Codebase

- Releases

 

If you are looking for stable build, then you should consider the jbossas/console repository.

Current development however, takes place on the "develop" branch. Stable milestones will be merged onto "master" with every release.

Goals

 

- Deliver consistent user experience across products

- Aim for a conceptual model that represents the semantics/intentions of the domain model

- Share authentication with other management API entry points

- Manage both domain and standalone scenarios

- Provide extension points to layered products

- Remain lightweight and minimize dependencies

Requirements

 

- Provide management operations for all subsystems

(See ConsoleModelStructure, Status)

- Allow remote deployment

- Manage user and groups that access the management infrastructure

- Support i18n

Design Considerations

 

- Core UI Abstraction: MVP

(See ManagementConsolePatterns)

 

- How does authentication work from the console?

(See ManagementAPISecurityDesign)

 

- Look & Feel (Some Screenshots)

The overall Look&Feel will be based on the Ballroom library:

 

- http://community.jboss.org/wiki/BallroomLookFeel

- http://community.jboss.org/wiki/CurrentAS7ConsoleWidgetSet

 

Implementation Choices

- AutoBean (Databinding, Model Representation)

 

- GWT Platform (MVP Abstraction)

Integration Tests

Checkout the sources and see the README.txt for most recent instructions how to run the test suite.

(Requires an AS7 domain running on your local host)
