I think Pete considered scripts a requirement for testing. The pull is based on this issue he created: https://github.com/jboss-jdf/jboss-as-quickstart/issues/243

I consider them a requirement because some of the configuration are extensive and you need to not only configure the server, but remove the configurations when testing is complete. Some requre more than 10 separate commands, and, not only do you get tired of copying and pasting that many individual CLI commands, the process can be error prone. With scripts, you can be assured the server will be configured and restored correctly. :-)

As Sande said the new, unmerged, scripts aren't required. They're just 
there for convenience instead of having to manually edit XML.

Being able to run a CLI script on a server from the IDE would be pretty 
awesome. Do you guys use the CLI public API at all? If not that would 
work quite well for a feature like this.

Or are they just custom goals you can run as a one-off to change the 
server or would they *always* be executed ?

And i'm wondering if we should add a "Run on server" feature in 
eclipse to
run these easily from the IDE against a server already configured...

I did find and arquillian-maven plugin [1], but it looks like it 
hasn't been updated in a while. I'm also not sure if the ARQ API can 
handle scripts. I don't mind helping update the plugin if that seems 
like a viable solution. Also I don't mind adding support to the 
WildFly ARQ to allow for scripts.

If anyone has any thoughts or opinions on this feel free to express 
them. I'm not sure if we even want to do the validation, but it does 
seem it would be useful. Especially as quickstart targeted servers
