In this post, you will learn about JBoss EAP on Podman
JBoss EAP is an open-source platform for highly transactional, web-scale Java applications. JBoss EAP combines the familiar and popular Jakarta EE specifications with the latest technologies, like Eclipse MicroProfile, to modernize your applications from traditional Java EE into the new world of DevOps, cloud, containers, and microservices.
JBoss EAP includes everything needed to build, run, deploy, and manage enterprise Java applications in various environments, including on-premise, virtual, private, public, and hybrid clouds. JBoss EAP is based upon the popular open-source project WildFly.
- Java 8 compliant JDK
- Administration privileges for the install directory
A JBoss EAP standalone server instance is an independent process (similar to previous JBoss EAP versions, e.g., 4 or 5). The configuration files, deployment content, and writable areas used by the standalone server are in the following subdirectories under the top-level standalone directory. In addition, JBoss EAP can overwrite some of the default directories for a JBoss EAP standalone server with system properties. These system properties must be passed to the start script or placed in the standalone.conf (loaded from standalone. sh) or standalone.bat.conf (loaded from standalone.bat) files. The following table shows the directories that files can override.
