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
Unzip or untar it.
some_path$ tar zxf jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.tar.gz
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.
$ export JBOSS_HOME=<some_path>
After downloading it, change to the bin directory and start it as follows:
$ cd bin $ ./standalone
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
