1.3. Installing on JBoss EAP


You are looking at documentation for an older release. Not what you want? See the current release documentation.

eXo Platform 4.4 integrates with JBoss EAP 6.4.0


Installing eXo Platform on JBoss EAP

  1. Extract your downloaded eXo Platform package.

  2. Copy all extracted folders and files into $PLATFORM_JBOSS_HOME.


    This step will overwrite some files of JBoss EAP with new files of eXo Platform.

  3. Optionally, if you want to customize the JVM Options, create a copy of $PLATFORM_JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone-customize.sample.conf on Linux or $PLATFORM_JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone-customize.sample.conf.bat on Windows. Rename the copy to standalone-customize.conf (or standalone-customize.conf.bat on Windows), then edit it with your JVM Options.

  4. Start up the server.

    • On Linux and OS X:

    • On Windows:


    The server starts up successfully when you see the following message in your log/console:

    INFO  [org.jboss.as] (Controller Boot Thread) JBAS015874: JBoss EAP 6.4.0.GA (AS 7.5.0.Final-redhat-21) started in 111437ms - Started 2836 of 3060 services (221 services are passive or on-demand)
  5. Shut down the server.

    • On Linux and OS X:

      $PLATFORM_JBOSS_HOME/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect command=:shutdown
    • On Windows:

      %PLATFORM_JBOSS_HOME%\bin\jboss-cli.bat --connect command=:shutdown

    The server stops successfully when you see the following message in your log/console:

    INFO  [org.jboss.as] (MSC service thread 1-6) JBAS015950: JBoss EAP 6.4.0.GA (AS 7.5.0.Final-redhat-21) stopped in 2576ms


Since JBoss EAP 6.3, there is a new blocking timeout property for JBoss startup.

This property is not a timeout per deployment but a timeout on container stability and if jboss.as.management.blocking.timeout is reached during startup then all applications will be undeployed and the container shutdown.

The default value is set to 300s which is too low for eXo Platform in which we overrode the value.

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Djboss.as.management.blocking.timeout=604800"
