Start Jboss on boot with openSuse

This is the way of getting a JBoss application server to start automatically when the OS loads.

 

1. Following steps must do as ROOT.

2. When installing Jboss the script jboss_init_suse.sh is auto generated at

/home/jboss/jboss-5.0.0.GA/bin

3. The script from section need to copy into /etc/init.d and name it “jboss”

run:  cp /home/jboss/jboss-5.0.0.GA/bin/jboss_init_suse.sh /etc/init.d/jboss

4. Give permissions to the file

run: chmod 755 jboss

5. Create Log dir. inside the log dir a log file will be created. here is the path:

/home/jboss/jboss-5.0.0.GA/log

6. Must update the initiate file with the right paths(see section 9)

7. Configure the system to autmaticly the script on boot with this command:

/sbin/insserv  /etc/init.d/jboss

(or use Yast:  Yast -> System -> System Services (Runlevel) ->jboss ->Enable -> ok)

8. In order to start/stop/restart the service we need to use the command:

service jboss start/stop/restart

9.Init file:(pay attention the “Bold” parts

# JBoss Control Script
#
# To use this script
# run it as root - it will switch to the specified user
# It loses all console output - use the log.
#
# Here is a little (and extremely primitive)
# startup/shutdown script for SuSE systems. It assumes
# that JBoss lives in /usr/local/jboss, it's run by user
# 'jboss' and JDK binaries are in /usr/local/jdk/bin. All
# this can be changed in the script itself.
#
# Either amend this script for your requirements
# or just ensure that the following variables are set correctly
# before calling the script.
