JBoss Application Server 7
JBoss Application Server 7 is the latest release in a series of JBoss Application Server offerings. JBoss Application Server 7, is a fast, powerful, implementation of the Java Enterprise Edition 6 specification. The state-of-the-art architecture built on the Modular Service Container enables services on-demand when your application requires them.
For more information about JBoss AS please refer to its homepage.
The included JBoss Application Server is a custom build. It means that it's not exactly the same as upstream's distribution. The Fedora version includes only JEE 6 web-profile. The main reson for that were time constraints.
JBoss AS will be extended with new updates to the full version over the time.
The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...
- Marek Goldmann (mgoldmann on IRC)
Prerequisite for Test Day
- An Fedora 17 pre-release with all updates from
updates-testinginstalled, Rawhide (tips on installing Rawhide below), or a nightly live image
- (optional) Your hardware profile uploaded to Smolt according to these instructions
- (optional) Beer (if you're adult)
How to test?
High level details on how a contributor can get involved. This can include (but not limited to):
- Areas to target with exploratory testing
- A list of pre-defined test cases to execute
- How to report back results
Here's another common chunk (again, replace XX as above):
Update your machine
If you're running Fedora XX, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. If you want to try Rawhide, see the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide. Or:
Construct a table or list to allow testers to post results. Each column should be a test case or configuration, and each row should consist of test results. Include some instructions on how to report bugs, and any special instructions. Here's an example, from a Palimpsest test day:
If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component udisks, or gnome-disk-utility for bugs in the Palimpsest graphical front end itself. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one, and the second should be a link to the Smolt profile of the system you tested. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
