    New beginner documentation


      Here is some beginner docs I created on my blog at

      Also, you can go to http://localhost:8082/ to see the JBoss console. You can check out all the JMX beans which manage JBoss.

      Watch the prompt at which you launched run.bat for JBoss and you'll see it process your war and jar and install everything. For the entity beans, JBoss actually creates the tables in its included Hypersonic DB to support the entity beans! You'll end up with an ejb-test.jar and a web-client.war file in the \jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3\server\default\deploy dir. So you can go to http://localhost:8080/web-client/ to see the index.jsp presented which is hitting a sample EJB. So, if you are familiar with Tomcat, this is a little strange - the war can live in \jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3\server\default\deploy dir and be served out as if it was in the tomcat/webapps directory. I also assume that you could package it all up as an ear file in \jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3\server\default\deploy.

      Make sure you edit the ant.properties file to reflect your environment, like JBoss home, ant home, and xdoclet home. I actually had to change the name of the file to ant.properties (no leading period) and change that filename in the build.xml file. Why? Because windows would not accept a period leading the file name. If you have ant, xdoclet, and jboss 3.0 installed, go to the sample/template directory via a dos prompt and type ant. email me at toastchum at yahoo.com if you have any build errors.

      You can download (look near the bottom of the page) the introductory materials at: http://jboss.org/docs.

      Look for: JBOSS 3.0 GETTING STARTED The JBoss Group members are writing a free "getting started" booklet that covers the 3.0 series. It is the basis for the future documentation book under development. This documentation is directly written by the authors of JBoss. If you quickly want to get started with JBoss this includes all the examples you need and a step by step approach.
