The first chapter gave us the basis to get started with WildFly 8. It is time for us to dive right into the configuration of WildFly and see how to manage a standalone instance of the application server. You will see that the entire server is configured within a single file.
The configuration file is made up of a list of subsystems, including the application server core services and standard Java EE services. It is not possible to discuss all the subsystems within a single chapter, so they have been divided over a couple of chapters. By the end of this chapter, you should understand and be able to configure:
The server configuration file
The application server's thread pool
The application server's logging subsystem
