Exactly, we want to only have to solve this problem once, esp in the case of
build builds (maven, gradle) and forge. JBoss Tools could offer this
support, though users needs are satisfied pretty well in the Eclipse
ecosystem already, so that's less of a concern. More that it could be if the
motivation is there.

+1 This ties into the suggestion I had a while back that it could be used
for procurement. Though I think we do want to keep the scope at least within
developer and devops tooling...at least as far as we explain it on the
project site & docs. By all means, prototype in any which direction.

Back to the topic of the thread, I'm looking for an agreement from the forge
team to impl the container control & deployment using Arquillian Containers,
enhancing it as needed. After all, we don't want to be stuck having to
maintain two sets of adapters.
