Note: Since this blog was written, JBoss AS 7.0.0.Final (Lightning) has been released and our build now bundles this.


Our nightly builds are now pre-configured with JBoss AS 7.0.0.CR1 (White Rabbit) and SwitchYard v 0.2.0-SNAPSHOT:



We have also ensured that the quickstart samples and demos work seamlessly with this build. Thanks to the modular, crazy fast White Rabbit a full fleged application (with CDI Beans and SOAP gateway) deploys in a couple of seconds.

Download the SwitchYard Distribution Zip file and simply unzip it into a suitable location on your file system. To start the SwitchYard AS7 instance open a command terminal, change directory into the distribution bin directory and execute the "standalone" command script ( on Unix/Linux/MacOS and standalone.bat on Windows). You should see the SwitchYard extension being activated.
