JBossPostgreSQL.bin or JBossPostgreSQL.exe

A convenience utility to install the JBoss application server and PostgreSQL database.

Novell provides the JBossPostgreSQL utility as a convenience. If your company does not already provide an application server and a database server, you can use the JBossPostgreSQL utility to install an Open Source version of these components. By running this utility, you can install these components without having to download them separately. If you need support, go to the third party provider of the component. Novell does not provide updates for these components, or administration, configuration, or tuning information for these components, beyond what it is outlined in the Roles Based Provisioning Module documentation.

This utility provides the Community Edition of the JBoss Application Server, which JBoss only supports via their User Forums. We recommend that an enterprise application server be used for staging and production environments, and this utility be used for creating development environments. The enterprise application servers that we support are:

  • IBM WebSphere

  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform

  • Oracle WebLogic

You can select another default installation directory during the installation, but it must exist prior to starting the installation and be writable (and in the case of Linux or Solaris, be writable by non-root users).
