Junos Space applications and supports standard packaging of pluggable
applications based on the
.ear file format. It also supports
hot plug-and-play deployment of Junos Space applications when the
system is fully operational.
JBoss provides three configuration options: minimal, default, and all. Junos Space Network Management Platform specifies all as the default JBoss configuration option.
