Q. How do I install JBoss Application Server under RHEL 5 / CentOS 5 Linux?

A. JBoss Application Server (JBoss ) is a free open source software Java EE-based application server. Because it is Java-based, the JBoss application server is cross-platform, usable on any operating system that Java supports.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS Linux 5 JBoss Installation

JBoss AS 4.0 is a Java EE 1.4 application server, with embedded Apache Tomcat 5.5. Any Java Virtual Machine between versions 1.4 and 1.5 is supported. Type the following command as root user to install it:
# yum install java-1.5.0-sun-devel jbossas

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or 4 JBoss installtion

For older version use up2date command as follows:
# up2date -i java-1.5.0-sun-devel jbossas

Did you mean you have to install with the zip file to make it work?

Nope..CentOS doesn’t have the packages mentioned..
It does not work for CentOS..unless you install openjdk and jboss through jpackage or such..
Perhaps you have to try it out yourself on a CentOS 5.5 intstallation :)

Is there any particular reason why JDK 1.6 is not supported?
