JBoss AS 7

Deploying JBoss AS 7 on Linux.

1. Download the JBoss AS tarball from http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/

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

2. Extract the downloaded tarball

tar -zxvf jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.tar.gz

3. Move the folder to a filesystem with plenty of room:

mv jboss-as-7.1.1.Final /usr/local/

4. Rename the folder to jboss (or symlink the versioned folder to jboss)

mv jboss-as-7.1.1.Final jboss


ln -s jboss-as-7.1.1.Final jboss

This particular version comes with 2 modes of operation, standalone or domain. You’ll need to choose which one you need. Use the init script from my github repo: (coming soon)
