Create plugin to generate upstart job for script (i.e., AS startup)

                 Key: SEAMFORGE-186
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAMFORGE-186
             Project: Seam Forge
          Issue Type: Feature Request
          Components: Blessed Plugins
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0.Alpha3
            Reporter: Dan Allen

There is a most excellent ruby gem called foreman that automates the application lifecycle of servers. It does this by generating an upstart job (the next generation of the init daemon for Linux) from any startup script. An obvious example is the AS startup script (./bin/run.sh for AS 6, ./bin/standalone.sh for AS 7).


The downside is that you have to install ruby, ruby gems, then the foreman gem to make it work. Aren't we using Java? That's why this functionality should be brought to forge!

In the end, it simply generates a couple of configuration files that are read by upstart. The result, you get these system commands:

start jboss-as
stop jboss-as
status jboss-as
