    Getting started guide???

    illusioni Newbie

      Hello, there!

      I didn't expect I had to buy books or pay for training when using JBoss.

      Isn't there any documentation available like a getting started guide? Some document answering the question "How do I install and configure JBoss?"?

      I would welcome every hint.
      Thank you,
      Klaus Baumgartner

          How to install JBoss

          1 - Install a JDK
          2 - Set a JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the folder that contains your JDK
          3 - Obtain a copy of JBoss from Sourceforge.net
          4 - Unzip the copy of JBoss that you have downloaded
          4 - Navigate to the bin folder contained within the JBoss folder and execute the run.bat or run.sh (depending on your operating system)

          After messages have stop scrolling up the screen open a web browser and navigate to http://localhost:8080/jmx-console to see if everything is running.

          If you have any problems or other questions you can search the forums to see if anyone else has had the same issue or post a new message.

            I get prompted for a username/password after following your instructions. Any idea what that is?

            Also, I've noticed a few places mention of things like:
            "Our "getting started" documentation is free ..." and
            " PLEASE USE THE PROFESSIONAL 3.0 GETTING STARTED INSTEAD. " but haven't found this. Any ideas where this is?
