Description Ian Springer 2009-06-12 09:41:00 EDT
This would allow us to merge for a number of "duplicate" Resource types (e.g. EJBs under either standalone EJB-JAR or embedded EJB-JAR; JVMs under JBossAS, Tomcat, or RHQ Agent; Scripts under different Server types; etc.)

Note, our model already supports this, and we already allow it for servers and top-level services, which can potentially have any of the platform resource types as parents. I think a nice way to support it across the boards at the plugin descriptor level would be using the notion of references, e.g.:

<server name="JBossAS Server">
   <service name="Web Application (WAR)">
      <metric ...>
      <operation ...>
   <service name="Enterprise Application (EAR)">
      <service ref="Web Application (WAR)"/>

See the use of ENTITY in AS7 plugin.  That is the style used for this.
