3 - Verify With Magnolia’s Certified Stack

Versions With JBoss EAP 7.0 and Above

Click here:  https://wildfly.org/downloads/ 

Download the ZIP file with the description saying “Java EE Full & Web Distribution

5 - Add Magnolia to JBoss

 - Unzip the file you downloaded and create a new folder within the "standalone/deployments" folder. Name this folder “<name_of_Magnolia_instance>.war”. This is a regular folder and it will not be a WAR file, we will just be having “.war” as part of the name. 

 - Drop the Magnolia WAR file into this newly created folder.

 - Explode the added WAR file: How to Explode a WAR.

6 - Configure Magnolia With JBoss

- Within standalone/deployments/<name_of_Magnolia_instance>.war/WEB-INF folder, create a new file and name it “jboss-deployment-structure.xml”. 

- Paste the following code into this newly created file:

Jboss-deployment-structure.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<jboss-deployment-structure xmlns="urn:jboss:deployment-structure:1.2">
    <deployment>
        <exclude-subsystems>
            <subsystem name="weld" />
            <subsystem name="jaxrs" />
            <subsystem name="webservices" />
        </exclude-subsystems>
        <exclusions>
            <module name="org.apache.log4j" />
            <module name="org.slf4j" />
            <module name="org.bouncycastle" />
        </exclusions>
    </deployment>
</jboss-deployment-structure>

 - Open your magnolia.properties file and add the following line : magnolia.definitions.classpath=info.magnolia

7 - Deploy Your Magnolia Instance

Create a new file within standalone/deployments and name it “<name_of_folder_with_exploded_WAR>.dodeploy”. As an example, if you named the folder magnoliaAuthor.war, the name of this new file will be “magnoliaAuthor.war.dodeploy”. No other changes will be made to this file.

8 - Start The Server

Open a console window and change directory to “<JBoss_folder>/bin”. And execute the following command: ./standalone.sh

9 - Access The Page

The page name is the name of the folder you created. 

10 - Stop The Server

You can shut off the server by doing ctrl+c on the console that you started the server with.
