Getting started with JBoss AS 7 in Fedora

From a terminal, install JBoss AS 7 using yum:

sudo yum -y install jboss-as

Start the JBoss AS 7 system service:

sudo systemctl start jboss-as.service

Connect to the JBoss AS 7 management console (for the system instance):

sudo -u jboss-as sh -c "jboss-cli -c"

When you connect to the management console, the server will send a secret key challenge to the client. The client can only pass the challenge if it has physical direct access to the filesystem and the same permissions as the user running the server. Otherwise, you'd need to create and use a proper management user.

Stop the JBoss AS 7 system service:

sudo systemctl stop jboss-as.service

Create a user instance of JBoss AS 7:

jboss-as-cp -l $HOME/jboss-as-user-instance

Start the JBoss AS 7 user instance:

$HOME/jboss-as-user-instance/bin/standalone.sh

standalone.sh is a script generated by jboss-as-cp that effectively runs this command

JBOSS_BASE_DIR=$HOME/jboss-as-user-instance /usr/share/jboss-as/bin/standalone.sh -c standalone-web.xml

Connect to the JBoss AS 7 management console (for the user instance):

 jboss-cli -c

You don't need any special permissions to connect to the management console this time thanks to the developer friendly security policy.
