Redhat / CentOS Linux Install JBoss Application Server

Posted on in Categories , , , , , , last updated November 4, 2008

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

  1. Hi!
    I’ve CENTOS5 and yum install java-1.5.0-sun-devel jbossas really doest work… I’ve to install with the zip file.

  2. 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 :)

  3. Hi. I’m not able to install using this command. Gives error when konsole starts to read. He says there is nothing to do. Could you help me?
