This tutorial is for JBoss 7.1.1, but it should largely be the same:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-jboss-on-ubuntu-12-10-64bit

Just change the download link to:

https://olex-secure.openlogic.com/content/openlogic/jboss/7.2.0.Final/openlogic-jboss-7.2.0.Final-all-bin-1.zip

For details on why you need to download 7.2 from OpenLogic, see:

Hello,

That worked for the most part.
For some reason though Jboss keeps shutting down after a bit.
Droplet is not rebooted or anything....it seems like its shutting down after closing ssh console.

Any input would be appreciated!

Thank you!
Are you seeing anything in /var/log/syslog ?
I see this....

Hmm.... Nothing out of the ordinary there. Maybe you could try creating an init script and starting it that way:

https://community.jboss.org/wiki/HowToInstallJBossAS7AsALinuxService
i do see in putty it stops at
"started 370 of 427 services"
then just sits at that

Could that be something?
Any input on this?
Thank you!
Hello, Just wondering if you had an update on this subject.

Thank you
Hey guys,

I just went through this article:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-jboss-on-ubuntu-12-10-64bit

And just changed the download link to:

https://olex-secure.openlogic.com/content/openlogic/jboss/7.2.0.Final/openlogic-jboss-7.2.0.Final-all-bin-1.zip

as I suggested above. I was able to get JBoss installed and running correctly.

If it's not leaving any output in the logs when it crashes, one thing you could do is just run it in the foreground and wait for it to crash:


./standalone.sh -Djboss.bind.address=yourserverip -Djboss.bind.address.management=yourserverip


Note that the command does not end with &
