3.5. Exclude a Subsystem from a Deployment

Summary

This topic covers the steps required to exclude a subsystem from a deployment. This is done by editing the jboss-deployment-structure.xml configuration file. Excluding a subsystem provides the same effect as removing the subsystem, but it applies only to a single deployment.

Procedure 3.5. Exclude a Subsystem

  1. Open the jboss-deployment-structure.xml file in a text editor.
  2. Add the following XML inside the <deployment> tags:
    <exclude-subsystems>
      <subsystem name="SUBSYSTEM_NAME" />
    </exclude-subsystems>
    
  3. Save the jboss-deployment-structure.xml file.
Result

The subsystem has been successfully excluded. The subsystem's deployment unit processors will no longer run on the deployment.

Example 3.6. Example jboss-deployment-structure.xml file.
