In this video tutorial, I show how to start / stop JBoss 6 using the plugin Cargo for Maven. And to deploy an archive.
In the previous tutorial, I created and imported the project in Eclipse with the m2Eclipse plugin.
I have recently started studying Apache CXF, the open source web service framework. I am familiar with developing Web Services using EJB 3, Axis or Glue. But not with CXF. Until now.
CXF is a mix of two projects : Celtix and XFire, which explains the name CXF.
It provides support for the JAX-WS, JAX-RS and JAX-RPC specifications.
Developing Web Services using CXF and JBoss is quite easy. The only annoying part is to figure out which JARs libraries
to include in the classpath and which JARs libraries to exclude.
Today I wanted to experiment some load balancing with JBoss and Apache. For that I needed to run 2 JBoss servers on one single machine.
Server 1 is installed in D:\jboss-126.96.36.19900721-M4-Server1
Server 2 is installed in D:\jboss-188.8.131.5200721-M4-Server2
Of course if you run both servers at the same time, you will get errors such as “address already in use” because of services running on the same ports in both servers.
It turns out that you need to modify the D:\jboss-184.108.40.20600721-M4-Server1\server\default\conf\bindingservice.beans\META-INF\bindings-jboss-beans.xml file to avoid same port conflicts.
So I added 100 to all ports defined in that file, for server 1.
For server 2, I only modified the HTTP WEB SERVER port because port 8080 is already taken by Oracle.
There is no need to modify the D:\jboss-220.127.116.1100721-M4-Server1\server\default\deploy\jbossweb.sar\server.xml file.
