Deleting the data and tmp directories Before Each Restart of JBoss EAP is Not Recommended

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Is it recommended to delete data and tmp folders? What is the best practice?
  • Does it make sense to remove the following directories? Are there any pros/cons to doing so?

    rm -rv jboss/domain/servers/*
    rm -rv jboss/domain/tmp/servers/*
    rm -rv jboss/domain/data/servers/*
    rm -rv jboss/domain/data/content/*
