Objective

In this post we are going to install JBoss AS 7.1.1 and Drools 6.1 Workbench.

In subsequent posts we will create and deploy rules, decision tables, and workflows with human interaction.

Download JBoss AS 7.1.1

Start JBoss AS 7.1.1

JBoss AS 7.1.1 will not run on Java8, so you will need to set your path to your Java 1.7 installation.

Running on a Mac, Java installations are installed in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines, so for myself to work with JBoss AS 7.1.1 I do the following:

  • Open a cmd shell
  • export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_45.jdk/Contents/Home
  • export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin
  • cd /Applications/Development/Servers/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/bin

Add a JBoss Management User

  • ./add-user.sh
  • a – Management User
  • ManagementRealm (default)
  • username: admin
  • password: any password
  • yes

001-asuser

Start JBoss AS

  • ./standalone.sh

Open a Browser

  • Open the browser at: http://localhost:8080/

With the Workbench enabled navigate to:

http://localhost:8080/kie-drools-wb-distribution-wars-6.1.0.Final-jboss-as7.0

Add a JBoss Application User

With the server still running

  • open a cmd shell
  • ./add-user.sh

  • ApplicationRealm (default)
