Community AS 5.x is dead. There isn't even a branch for it (Jason deleted it to
prevent people doing new dev on it.)

I expect this will first see the light of day via the EAP 5.1 branch. (Maybe not; see
below.) That seems bizarre, but that's the way things work.
I was actually expecting this to be built as a module in Infinispan's source tree, the
deliverable being a ZIP file that contains a "datagrid" directory and all the
necessary elements that can be run as a profile in AS/EAP 5.1. Considering that most of
the work involved would be XML config files (MC beans) and perhaps an integration class or
two, I don't see the need for it to affect the AS source tree (at least not in
it's current "tech preview" state).

well. I am assuming the bulk of the work required would be closely related to the MC
though, since the profile would have to configure and launch Infinispan instances and the
various server endpoints as needed, via the MC.
Paul has worked out the details of deploying a CacheManager (a set of them actually) in
AS 6. Those will be what the standard AS clustering services will use. What's
involved with setting up the server endpoints?
I was hoping to target AS/EAP 5.x first and then move on to 6, but FWIW any such profile
for 6 should then make use of Paul's work in deploying a CacheManager. In the case of
HotRod and Memcached, setting up an endpoint involves selecting the appropriate
and calling start() on it with the CacheManager to be used.
The REST endpoint is a little more tricky as it is a WAR file that Infinispan generates
that would need to be deployed in a servlet container. The current WAR file creates its
own CacheManager but we can change this to look up a CacheManager from elsewhere if
configured to do so (perhaps via servlet or system properties).
