It would be handy if it was possible to remove the members of a group from inventory, rather than just remove the members from the group itself. Removal should either be uninventory or deletion, as is done currently on the inventory page for parent resources. Basically I'm thinking of having the group resource act more like parent resources do now.
For example, there could be a webapp which you would like undeployed from all your JBAS servers. Just create a dynagroup, then on the inventory page for that group select the resources you wanted to delete, and delete them.
There are obviously other ways to skin this particular cat, e.g. you can already uninventory arbitrary resources from the Browse Resources page. So you could extend this by having a DELETE button and using the filter box to choose the resources you want to delete. The advantage I guess with the dynagroup approach is that it gives you finer grained control over which resources get selected.

this makes sense, but a formal dynagroup is probably not needed. if we wrapped the expressions with a more convenient (dynamic) UI, then we can expose it as on-the-fly or saved searches. then, the operation can be performed against the results of the search (as opposed to creating a dynagroup, editing expression list, recalculating the group, performing the results against the group, then deleting the group).

linking to RHQ-401 which talks about an expression builder, which is a text-oriented form of the dynamic interface i was referring to in my last comment.

Verified on JON 2.4 GA_QA build
The 'Groups' tab of inventory browser displays the button 'UNINVENTORY MEMBERS'
Selecting one or more resources and clicking on the button 'UNINVENTORY MEMBERS' uninventories members of the selected groups. The UI displays message 'Uninventoried members of selected groups '.
Here's the 3.1 link:
