Resource Mapping:
The biggest problem I have right now is the fact that the mapping of the
resources, roles, etc cannot be done dynamically in the console. There are two
part to that.

  • At Deploy time: In IBM WS, It is very easy to see what an application need
    when deploying in the GUI because there is a part in the deployment wizard that
    ask for the mapping (giving the default mapping but giving the deployer the
    opportunity to change it). This is relevant for the resources if the scheme
    employed in the production is not the same as the one used in Test/Integration
    (security reason). It is especially useful for mapping the security roles to
    ldap (or other) concrete user container.
  • At Run time: Changing the mappings of installed applications is not something
    that is done a lot and we do it only for testing or fail-over scenarios, but
    when you have to do it, it's VERY cool to be able to do it in the GUI.

I know everything can be done before by editing the ear deployment descriptor
files. It's just a lot more convenient to be able to do it through the GUI.
