I'm working on an application that is essentially a j2ee web application that probably won't use ejb, and in many cases may be more used as a desktop application. I want to be able to distribute a war file that could be plugged into any container, but i also need to be able to distribute a smallish (<5mb preferably) package that contains everything needed to run it. I would like to use jetty as the servlet container, and jbossmq for a jms service, but i really don't need a lot of the other capabilities that jboss offers. is it possible to configure a minimal set of components that includes only the aspects I require, or do i have to use all of it?
i have the jboss 3.03 documentation pdf, so if someone can give me a definitive answer and point me in the right direction that would be great!
Yes, its definitely possible. But no clear docs about how to go about it. Start with minimal config and experiment, and add things to lib, to default, and to jboss-service.xml
