How to install JBoss 5.0.1GA on Windows XP


You must have a working installation of JDK 1.5 or JDK 1.6 before you install JBoss Application Server. You can install the 32-bit or 64-bit JVM as per your requirements

Create an environment variable called JAVA_HOME that points to the JDK installation directory, for example: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_14.

In order to run java from the command line add the jre\bin directory to your PATH, for example: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_14\jre\bin. To do this, open the Control Panel from the Start Menu, switch to Classic View if necessary, open the System Control Panel applet, select the Advanced Tab, and click on the Environment Variables button.

N.B.: Don't put trailing slashes on paths
