    How to provide the bind address when running JBoss as a serv

    Glenn Puckett Newbie

      I am in the process of separating my production envrionment so I can implement load balancing. First I need to just get jBoss running on one machine and Apache and mySQL running on another. I am using the jBoss native executable (jBossSVC.exe) to run it as a service.

      Since it now needs to talk to a "remote" server it can no longer use as the bind address. So I need to provide the address for it to use.

      If I run jBoss from the command prompt and use the -b xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx parm it runs fine. However, it must run as a service in the production envrionment. I can't figure out how to provide the bind address when running it as a service.

      I have the following connector definition in my server.xml file:

      <!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 -->
       <Connector port="8009" address="${jboss.bind.address}" protocol="AJP/1.3"
       emptySessionPath="true" enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443"
       connectionTimeout="600000" maxThreads="500" />

      Where does jboss.bind.address get set? Is there a parm I can set in a configuration file that sets this rather than using a command line argument?
