Installing and configuring JBoss EAP

Configure JBoss EAP as a target server in Rational® SDP for ZIETrans web applications:
  1. On the Rational SDP menu bar, click Window > Preferences.
  2. In the left panel, expand Server.
  3. Click Runtime Environments.
  4. In the Server Runtime Environments panel, click Add.
  5. In the New Server Runtime Environment dialog, expand the Red Hat JBoss Middleware folder for JBoss EAP.
  6. Select the appropriate version of the JBoss Enterprise Application server.
  7. Optional. Select the Create a new local server box to create a JBoss server on your workspace Servers tab. Doing this step enables you to test your JBoss application within the Rational SDP local test environment using the Run on Server, Debug on Server, and Profile on Server functions.
  8. Click Next to go to the panel where you point to your local JBoss server. In the Application server installation Directory field enter the root folder where JBoss server is installed. For example, if JBoss server is installed in a folder named C:\EAP-7.1.0, enter this value in the installation directory field.
  9. Click Finish.
  10. Click OK to close the Preferences panel.

After following these steps, you can create ZIETrans applications within Rational SDP targeted for JBoss servers.
