This article will describe the steps required to build a sample application using JBoss Forge. As OpenShift does not currently (2012-11-15) have the latest version of SwitchYard, this document will also describe the steps required to install a SwithYard 0.6 overlay into OpenShift.
Ant, Maven, Java, SwitchYard 0.6 Installer zip
1. Install Forge
Go to: http://forge.jboss.org/
Download and install Forge 1.0.6.
2. Install the OpenShift Command Line Tools
3. Unzip the SwithYard Installer and Install Forge Tools
From the SwitchYard Installer directory, run:
Answer no to all questions except:
"[input] Would you like to install the SwitchYard Forge Module (y/n)? ([y], n)"
4. Create a test OpenShift Application
rhc app create sytest8 jboss-as7
5. Install SwitchYard to the App
From the sample project's main directory, start forge. You should see output similar to this:

[sytest8] sytest8 $
6. Copy SwitchYard 0.6 Modules to Overlay Folder
Copy the following modules from a fully installed SwitchYard 0.6 AS7 instance to .openshift/config/modules within your project:
7. Get the sample project from Github
Modify the pom to match your project name (groupid, artifiactid, etc).
Modify the port in src/main/resources/wsdl/OrderService.wsdl to match your deployment hostname on OpenShift.
Modify the contextPath in src/main/resources/META-INF/switchyard.xml to match your desired context path
8. Add all files to git and push
git add -A; git commit -a -m "Adding sample project files"; git push
9. Go to:
Load this WSDL into your favorite SOAP test tool (eg, SoapUI) and send a sample request
