We are doing some work with JBoss at work. It got me wondering about how to install
this and play with it at home on one of my Linux server VMs.
Here are the basic steps that I ran tonight.
Get a JDK
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-JDK
Download a JBoss install
Make a place to store the install bits
sudo mkdir /home/jboss
Install the bits
java -jar jems-installer-1.2.0.GA.jar -installGroup default installpath=/home/jboss
Set the environment variables
sudo nano /etc/profile
logout then back into pick up the path.
Manually start JBoss
Some of the places that I found notes on how to do this:
I have two minor issues to work out here:
1. The Java_Home info is not quite correct.
2. I think that I need to change the permissions on the /home/jboss directory so that
I can run this without using sudo. Not a big deal as I have only
been working on this for a few minutes.
