Announcing RHQ Agent Plugin Plugin

I'm happy to announce the release of RHQ Agent Plugin Plugin!

Plugin Plugin? Yes. Plugin Plugin: a Maven plugin to help you build RHQ Agent plugins.

It provides a handful of very convenient mojos for:
  • Packaging
  • Validation
  • Deployment to a local RHQ Server (dev-container)
  • Uploading to to a remote RHQ Server
  • RHQ CLI script or command execution
  • Standalone Plugin Container setup for integration tests

Dependent agent plugins are supported (many plugins depend on the parent JMX plugin, for example).

The RHQ Agent Plugin Plugin documentation is hosted on Github Pages and the bits are available on JBoss Releases and Maven Central repositories.
