Subject Re: Error with quickstart sample: starting jboss on localhost on Windows
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2016 01:16:30 GMT
I am trying to deploy a set of JBoss servers to a set of Windows servers (the Bring your own
node case). Many of our customers are Windows-only shops.
The application is a large distributed application that requires several app servers to run
and I am looking to see how we can do it using Brooklyn. 
JBoss server itself is supported on Linux and Windows. So I imagine I can extend the entity
to deploy on Windows?
(The app looks super-easy to get started BTW)Thanks,Kiran.

You'll need to target a Linux (or OS X) machine for deploying the 
JBoss7Server entity. You should be able to run Brooklyn on your Windows 
laptop. You can then use a location such as a public cloud, or a 
pre-existing ip:port of a linux VM, or vagrant VM(s).

(Even if you get past the /tmp problem, the install and launch commands 
for the JBoss7Server entity were not written with Windows in mind.)

If you need to deploy to windows, there is WinRM support for executing 
powershell (using the VanillaWindowsProcess). See [1] for an example 
blueprint (which will be available in 0.9.0, but not in 0.8.0-incubating).

Can you let us know more about your use-case, so we can see how it would 
best be handled?
