The code changes required to make the engine work on Jboss AS7 will soon be push
It will, of course, require you to install it, and start working with it :-)
A separate E-mail will be sent to notify you all once pushed, and then you'll have to
perform the following steps:
1. Download jboss 7.1.0 Beta1b
- There is a newer version, but it has issues in the REST-API, so we decided to work with
the beta version until a proper fix will be released.
2. Fetch the latest changes from our git repository
3. Change the Jboss home to the new path, both in the JBOSS_HOME environment variable, and
in maven settings file (~/.m2/settings.xml)
4. Build the engine, with profiles "dep" and "setup". This will put
all the proper configuration files, postgresql driver and make all the other needed
changes in Jboss in order to make it work properly
mvn clean install -Psetup,dep .......
5. In order to run Jboss go to JBOSS_HOME/bin and run ./standalone.sh
6. Look inside the JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone.conf file in order to enable jboss debugging
(just uncomment the line JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS
7. If you have a krb5.conf file you are working with, put it in
8. Run Jboss (and be impressed by the startup speed!)
The above will be also added to the wiki page for building the engine as soon as the
patches will be pushed upstream.
Some facts about Jboss 7:
1. It supports both standalone deployment, and domain deployment. We use the standalone
2. Stuff related to the standalone mode can be found in the JBOSS_HOME/standalone
* configuration - contains the main configuration file called standalone.xml file, plus
some other configuration files
* deployments - that's where your deployments should be. When adding a new one,
don't forget to create a file called "<deployment-name>.dodeploy" in
order to make it deploy.
* log - that's where the log files are written (unless stated differently in the
3. The different modules that come with Jboss 7 are located in JBOSS_HOME/modules
* No more common/lib directory.
* Every module has a module.xml file which contains it's dependencies in other
modules, the jars that are part of the module, and etc.
* In order to use a dependency from there you have to add "Dependencies"
section to your manifest file (do git grep "Dependencies" to take a look at some
examples done in the engine source code).
