Set WildFly binding address and shutdown using CLI

It’s very easy to bind WildFly on a hostname/IP just using command line parameters. I have a simple GNU/Linux box that I use it to play with various things, one of them is WildFly.

I start WildFly listening on a specific IP using this commands:

$> cd /opt/wildfly/wildfly-8.0.0.Beta1/bin
$> ./standalone.sh -c standalone-full.xml -b= -bmanagement=

As you can see, I use my IP in 2 parameters/points. The first one (-b) is the regular address that server listens to serve traffic and the second one (-bmanagement) is the management address. The first parameter (-b) is the old known parameter that is used on JBoss 4.x too.

In order to shutdown server, I use the new CLI interface of JBoss/WildFly:

$> cd /opt/wildfly/wildfly-8.0.0.Beta1/bin
$> ./jboss-cli.sh --connect controller= command=:shutdown

JBoss/WildFly CLI is really useful tool, as you can use it to create/change/view various resources on server (Datasource, JMS destinations, etc.) and deploy/undeploy applications.  JBoss/WildFly CLI is very similar to WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST), but JBoss CLI is Open Source and the knowledge is on public space and does not belong to a company or to a closed group. This is the vital virtue of Open Source Software and Free Software, to learn people to share and innovate on the same time.

Hope it helps!
