Description Corey Welton 2010-10-04 15:39:36 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently for a JON/RHQ server, the Trait value for "Build Date" is that of the underlying JBoss Server.  Should probably make this something a little more useful/contextual.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Navigate to Monitoring > Traits subtab for a platform that hosts a jon/rhq server
2.  Note value of trait for RHQ server's "Build Date"

Actual results:
Value appearing is that of the underlying jboss server.

Expected results:
something more useful.

Additional info:

[11:15] <@cswiii> anyone know why I would have a Build Date of "July 18, 2008" as the Trait for an RHQ Server?
[11:15] <@cswiii> what's the significance, if any, of July 18, 2008?
[11:16] < joseph> when the version of the underlying jbossas binary was built
[11:16] <@cswiii> ahh ok
[11:17] < joseph> perhaps we should have our own trait in the rhq-server plugin for the rhq/jon-server build date
[11:35] <@ips> joseph: we could add a trait for git rev too
[11:36] < joseph> and jon would be svn rev?

We won't do this for RHQ 4.0, but it's a possibility for JON 3.0.
