Try doing a build first and then looking in the thirdparty directory. Much of the functionality of JBoss AS comes from various subprojects which all fall under the thirdparty umbrella. Once the inital compile is done, the third party components and their sources often appear in the thirdparty directory (usually inside *-src.jar files).
Thanks Peter. So i downloaded the source code and ran build.sh
It downloads some stuff and then breaks at this error. I pointed my browser to the url and in face done find the .pom file at the specified path. Am i missing something? Thanks.
[ERROR] Non-resolvable parent POM org.jboss:jboss-parent:5 for org.jboss.jbossas:jboss-as-component-matrix:184.108.40.20600911-M5: Failed to resolve POM for org.jboss:jboss-parent:5 due to Failure to resolve org/jboss/jboss-parent/5/jboss-parent-5.pom from http://repo1.maven.org/maven2 was cached in the local repository. Resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of central has elapsed or updates are forced. Original error: Error transferring file: Connection refused
I suspect based on the last part of the error message, "Error transferring file: Connection refused", that you cannot access the maven repository. Try opening the repository URL (also mentionedi n the error) in a browser.
a) You use a proxy server to access the internet and Maven is not configured to use that proxy: http://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-proxies.html
b) There is a firewall issue (or some other settings) that is blocking access. This is common in corporate networks. If this is the case for you, try doing this from home.
I went past that error but get this one now.. looks like a permission issue in the repository.
Also, referring to my original question, I don't quite understand why a core class like org.jboss.bootstrap.spi.Server which kicks off startup (and is not thirdparty), would be generated as part of a build rather than be included in the source code..
