In-Depth Information
We started an interactive shell session that can also use the command-line completion (by
pressing the Tab key) to match partly typed command names. No more searches are
needed to find the exact syntax of commands!
In the previous screenshot, we connected to the server using the connect command; it
uses the loopback server address and plugs into port 9990 by default.
The command-line interface is discussed in depth in Chapter 9 , Managing the Application
Server , which is all about server management interfaces; we will, however, get an initial
taste of its basic functionalities in the next sections to get you accustomed to this powerful
Stopping WildFly
The easiest way to stop WildFly is by sending an interrupt signal with Ctrl + C .
