JSR-77 is required for EE, but it is very out of date, and will likely
get killed in a future release. JSR-88 is already scheduled for
removal in EE7.
So we should not even consider using it for remote access ?

If you guys need advanced management functionality, it sounds like the
Profile Service is going to be what you need.
Sure, but profile service is not
available to us remotely.
Btw. I don't consider any of the things we want to do very advanced - we
don't want to be another JON.
Something basic and simple as i.e. Tomcat Management API would be enough
for us afaics.
It provides a simple http api to list, start/stop/undeploy
applications/resources (both local and remote resources)
btw. this is not just for *us* this is for the greater good of AS :)
