You mean why not just bin/standalone.sh -c standalone-full ?
No particular reason. It never occurred to me. Thinking back on it, it
partly arose because in AS < 7 the -c value was basically a reference to
a dir name, while in AS7 it's a ref to a file name. The entire structure
of the AS dist is radically different in AS7. Being more explicit about
that difference was more important at the time than it is now.
If bin/standalone.sh -c st<tab complete to
andalone/configuration/standalone-full.xml> would work I'd be real
tempted to support that.
This would be really nice, simplicity and intuitiveness go a long way
in better developer experience.
