Referring from Redhat, Red Hat® JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) is a middleware platform built on open standards and compliant with the Java Enterprise Edition specification.
Based on https://access.redhat.com/articles/2026253 , JBoss EAP 7.3 is compatible with OpenJDK 11, so we will install this version of JDK.
$ yum install java-11-openjdk-devel

Starting JBOSS EAP.
To start the JBOSS EAP in standalone mode, run the standalone.sh under the EAP_HOME/bin.
Now, the JBoss EAP is already running, we can test by opening it in a browser. http://127.0.0.1:8080
If we want to run our web application on specific IP address , we can start it using option -b (bind-address).
$ /root/EAP-7.3.0/bin/standalone.sh -b 22.214.171.124
We can test it by accessing the http://126.96.36.199:8080 using our favorite browser.
To manage our web application we need to access EAP Management Console, the default page will run on 127.0.0.1, but we can change this by adding -bmanagement option.
$ /root/EAP-7.3.0/bin/standalone.sh -b 188.8.131.52 -bmanagement 184.108.40.206
Access the EAP Management Console by typing the url in a browser, copy this URL http://220.127.116.11:9990 , and login using previously defined user “admin” and password.
Run JBoss as a Service
For easier maintenance and to make it running after a server reboot, we need to run JBoss as a service. The startup option is configured in the jboss-eap.conf (EAP_HOME/bin/init.d).
Please configure this file using vim. Uncomment the parameter JBOSS_HOME and and change the current value to the real value of EAP_HOME and uncomment the parameter JBOSS_USER with the user which will run the JBoss EAP process.
$ vim /root/EAP-7.3.0/bin/init.d/jboss-eap.conf
Copy the modified jboss-eap.conf to the directory /etc/default.
$ cp /root/EAP-7.3.0/bin/init.d/jboss-eap.conf /etc/default/
Copy the jboss-eap-rhel.sh to the /etc/init.d
$ cp /root/EAP-7.3.0/bin/init.d/jboss-eap-rhel.sh /etc/init.d
Give executable permisson.
$ chmod +x /etc/init.d/jboss-eap-rhel.sh
Enable JBoss EAP service to start when the system start.
$ systemctl enable jboss-eap-rhel.sh
Start the service
$ systemctl start jboss-eap-rhel
Check the service status.
