How to use

In Clarive EE

Once the plugin is placed in its folder, you can find this service in the palette in the section of generic service and can be used like any other palette op.

Op Name: JBoss 6 Application Server

Configuration start example:

    Server Resource: GenericServer
    JBoss Path: /usr/share/jboss-6-Final
    Functions: start
    Custom Params: -c default -b 0.0.0.0

Due to the possible delay in starting the JBoss server, it is advisable to add a timeout if you then wish to perform a deployment service.

Configuration deployment example:

    Server Resource: GenericServer
    JBoss Path: /usr/share/jboss-6-Final
    Functions: deploy
    Credentials: 
        username: user
        password: ***
    Hostname: 193.192.32.1
    File Path: /tmp/example.war 

If the JBoss server reboots, the deployment should be performed again.
