    Setting up Multiple Instances of JBoss on the same machine


    I don't have several physical servers but I want to run several instances of JBossAS. What can I do?





    Two options are available:




    Binding each instance to a different ip adress (recommended approach)


    Server instances using the same port set can run concurrently on the same server if bound to a different ip address.




    $ -c node1 -b


    $ -c node2 -b


    We highly recommend using this technique over the ServiceBindingManager approach (see below) which makes server log debugging very difficult.


    This blog is a good guide to how to achieve this in the Windows family of operating systems.





    Configuring different port sets using the ServiceBindingManager


    The procedure is all explained in this wiki ConfigurePorts
