Wonderful information pulled together into one place - Thanks!
The only suggestion I would make at this time, is to perhaps include instructions for the production released versions of these products. For instance, I can't begin to suggest to a client that he run his production server with JBoss 3.x (yet) so we are currently working with 2.4.4. I don't know how much of a difference this would make in your document, but I expect it would be significant.
Using Eclipse 2.x beta is not _quite_ as much of an issue since developers have a higher tolerance for . . . the bleeding edge, but is another of the products that I would like to see how to use the production released version.
However . . . I still can't thank you enough for what you have put together. Thanks again!
I agree with your comment.
The aim of the guide was on J2EE 1.3. If I have time, I might put one up for 1.2 - but it won't be as valuable, as JBoss 2.4 has been out for a while and I think help is plenty out there.
Eclipse is a different story. 1.0 was the first release out 5 months ago and so much has been added into. When 2.0 finally comes out, I'll consider it a stable production choice. But for now, I'd go with the 2.0pre-builds. Build 20020322 is expected this Friday and I'll update my notes this weekend.
Wow! Right on. I've been trying to get these components setup on my system. This doc rocks. I've sent to the link to all the developers here in my shop.
Nice job. It is quite useful for me. Thx
The document now covers JBoss 3.0.0Beta2 (checking out of CVS and self-build), in addtion to 3.0.0Beta.
Also, it now refers to Eclipse build 20020321.
It's a great job!
But I meet a question:-)
How can I know that the tomcat is running? Why I can't browse the 8080 port? And 8082 is right.
Talking about JBoss. When you start it up, it has a server running on port 8082 listening HTTP requests. And the info you get is the JMX console information.
Tomcat is a seperate server. That's for serving JSP/Servlet. Default port is 8080, but you can configure differently.
Of course you can install the JBoss-Tomcat bundle, in which case when you start JBoss, Tomcat is also started. That means port 8080 will have Tomcat running on, and port 8082 will have JBoss' JMX console.
I understood, thanks!
Excellent work, great doc.
Thank you for taking the time to document the installation. My comment to you is that if you can show us how to integrate JBoss and Tomcat and mySQL for linux user.

All the tools (JBoss, Tomcat, Eclipse, etc) are Java-based, so the instruction should be portable - you need a different seperator of course and C: no longer valid.
mySQL installation is different. Just follow its own documentation.
I personally don't feel much value added to spend the time redo this on Linux - particularly my old Linux box need some work before ready.
I might in the near future deliver jar'ed binary after configuration (portable). If you don't want to climb the hill yourself, this could be an easy start. (That won't include mySQL.)
Great job! Really appreciate the help.
I follow the instruction and move further.
However, I still have problem access port 8080.
It shows "Status 500 - No Context configured".
How do I solve this problem?
If I just launch Tomcat by itself, it works.
I've exactly the same problem
I do too.
Could this be an issue with the jBoss&Tomcat bundle? (I downloaded the whole integrated package)
