RFE: Ability to load scripts from various sources in CLI and RHQ server
Last modified: 2013-09-01 06:03:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently it is only possible to load additional scripts in the interactive CLI using the "exec -f" command.
This is insufficient not only because such approach provides very little modularity but also it restricts the possible location of the scripts to load to the local filesystem on the CLI deployment (and only in the interactive mode at that).
This means that such approach is unusable in the RHQ server, where alert scripts cannot take advantage of such (limited) ability.
We should provide a generic and extensible way of specifying the locations of scripts and loading them from such locations using the modular approach of given scripting language.
The list of currently implemented "script source providers" + a description of a way to provide a new implementation is provided on:
Bulk closing of items that are on_qa and in old RHQ releases, which are out for a long time and where the issue has not been re-opened since.
