If you look at jbossas/modules/org/rhq you'll find some pretty long path names, which are annoying when you want to describe where things are. Also on Win* there is the issue with total path name length.
The attached patch will shorten rhq-server-startup-subsystem to server
and rhq-enterprise-server-ejb3.jar to rhq-server.jar as a starting point
> rhq-server-startup-subsystem to server
we should at least make it more descriptive. "server" and "rhq-server.jar" will be confusing (if we tell people "look in 'server'" I'm sure people will then ask "server" or "rhq-server.jar"?).
I think "server" should be renamed to something like "startup" or "rhq-startup". Its the startup subsystem that is responsible for deploying the ear.

Patch 2 - renamed module to server-startup
Attached is the same patch as before, except it renames the startup module "server-startup" rather than "server" to make it clearer what it is and makes it more descriptive.

Patch 3 - renamed module to server-startup
turns out, the dev container was not correct in the original patch, or my second one. I needed to fix it. attached is the latest patch that should work. still testing...
git commit to master: 957781e62543ff5023c4b59567ee76c6ab2a9d9a
the ejb3 jar is now "rhq-server.jar" and the startup module name is "server-startup"
to test, just look in the file system after unzipping the distro and make sure you have:
and you do NOT have:
In addition, make sure you have:
and you do NOT have
Awesome - even if I am not completely convinced with the "startup" name, as this also contains the ear (and the downloads etc).
But a huge improvement to the past.
