Running JBoss Application Server

This is about the JBoss Application Server, commonly known as JBoss AS. I have some posts that need the JBoss application server. If you visit the JBoss website, you will notice many projects that fall under it. Make sure you look for the application server.

Download JBoss AS server from the download site. http://www.jboss.org

GNU/Linux
http://download.jboss.org/jbossas/7.1/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.tar.gz

or

Windows
http://download.jboss.org/jbossas/7.1/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.zip

Unzip or untar it.

GNU/Linux

some_path$ tar zxf jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.tar.gz

Windows

c:\some_path> unzip jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.zip

Note the path where you started it. If you are using Maven from a different window, set the JBOSS_HOME to it in a different console. Replace <some_path> with the actual value.

Linux

 set JBOSS_HOME=<some_path>

Windows

 $ export JBOSS_HOME=<some_path>

After downloading it, change to the bin directory and start it as follows:

GNU/Linux

$ cd bin
$ ./standalone

Windows

c:\some_path> cd bin
c:\some_path\bin> standalone.bat

JBoss AS should start. Go to your web browser and check it out. http://localhost:8080
