Starting Up With JBOSS..!! - FLASH COURSE

Hello Guys,

Its been very long (more than 2 year, I have touched warmth of JBoss feelings, today just for sake of my friend as I promised him to try something new in JBoss Application Server, I had to remember some nice moments with JBoss, I never thought that I would be working on this App Server so soon when I am living WebLogic World.. :)

So here in this post I would be just trying to bring new minds to get started with JBoss Application Server, as of less time constraint I would be just carrying out the steps to setup the JBoss Application Server (Simplest One..!!) and Deploy a Simple war file and test the application, this setup will be so simple and worth of trying.

So As a first step we need to download the JBoss Installation file, you will get this at : for 5.1.0 GA (General Availability)

Next Step is to Unzip and Place it in your favorite application server installation directory.
Note : Here we no need to install the JBoss Application Server, as this Application Server is distributed under GPL (Open Source Software Foundation), we get the Source Code version of the Application to get our hands on, it majorly contains the jar files and the xml configuration files, which drives the JBoss Application Server its way.

After copying just navigate to the D:\jboss-5.0.1.GA\bin through command prompt.

And execute : run.bat. and watch the window (Desktop Window ;))

You will see something as I tried to start the server :

So the server started in 33s and 516ms : So Accurate..!!

This all for command prompt screen : Now Jump in to the Console with following URL

http://localhost:8080/   and check what it says

You will see the various links for other consoles on this page for WEB-CONSOLE and JMX CONSOLE 
However you can directly open the web-console and jmx-console as below
Web Console : http://localhost:8080/web-console/ - You will see more of configuration information here

JMX Console : http://localhost:8080/jmx-console/ - JMX Operations and Configuration Operations are done here.

Now the server is started, try deploying a sample war file over the server :

As an example I am deploying a war file called Calendar.war in server, for Deploying the sequences of steps will be as below.

STEP : Copy the war file to D:\jboss-5.0.1.GA\server\default\deploy

Immediately you will see a log at standard out as 05:55:29,921 INFO  [TomcatDeployment] deploy, ctxPath=/Calendar

Try accessing the war file with context path given  as : http://localhost:8080/Calendar/

Now you are all set..!! you have setup JBoss Application Server and Deployed a war file

Guys, Please let me know if you have any doubt over this, and let me know if I have missed any of the steps.

Please comment.
