Jaas - Setting the JBOSS_HOME variable

6.1. Setting the JBOSS_HOME variable in Linux.

Before you can run the JBoss Application Server, you need to ensure that you've configured the JBOSS_HOME environment variable in your .bashrc file as follows. In this example the Application Server folder has beeen copied to the /usr/jboss/jboss- folder. The following is a .bashrc file used in this installation. Please ensure that your .bashrc file has a similar configuration.

[user@localhost ~]$ gedit .bashrc
# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
# User specific aliases and functions
# The following are the environment variables for Java, ANT and JBoss
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_07
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin
export ANT_HOME=/usr/ant/apache-ant-1.6.0
export PATH=$PATH:$ANT_HOME/bin
export JBOSS_HOME=/usr/jboss/jboss-<release>

To implement your .bashrc file changes run the following command.

[user@localhost ~]$ source .bashrc
[user@localhost ~]$

If no errors are displayed on your terminal, you are now ready to run your JBoss Application Server.

6.2. Setting the JBOSS_HOME variable in Windows.
  • Create an environment variable called JBOSS_HOME that points to the JBoss Application Server installation directory, for example: C:\Program Files\JBoss\jboss-\.
  • In order to run JBoss Application Server from the command line, add the jboss-\bin directory to your path, for example: C:\Program Files\JBoss\jboss-\bin. To do this, open the Control Panel from the Start Menu, switch to Classic View if necessary, open the System Control Panel applet, select the Advanced Tab, and click on the Environment Variables button.
You are now ready to start the JBoss Application Server.
