JBoss in Ubuntu
Currently, there are no debian / ubuntu packages for JBoss.
It can be quite difficult to install JBoss for people that just want to setup a JBoss installation.
Allow easy installation of JBoss and its many different projects - as shown on http://www.jboss.org/projects/download/
Current packages within Hardy are:
- libjboss-common-java - The JBoss Common Project
- libjboss-profiler-java - JBoss Profiler
- libjboss-serialization-java - JBoss Serialization
These packages currently only contain specific jar files related to the above JBoss projects.
ie: libjboss-common-java includes the jboss-common.jar file only...
The libjboss-common-java package stores the library files (jar) within /usr/share/java, which is where all java related libraries / jar files are located within Ubunutu. Will need to keep this consistent.
There will be many different packages, created in a structured way.
Current JBoss binary tree
lib - contains the base jar files required for JBoss
endorsed - contains serializer, xalan and xercesImpl - required Apache jars
bin - scripts and main jar files for starting JBoss
client - client side jar files
server - JBoss server tree (this is where all the "guts" of JBoss is)
