This plugin allows to manage a JBoss Application Server during build procedure.

With the plugin we can start/stop JBoss AS. It's very useful if we need to run some integration tests against of the server. There is also operation allows verification if artifacts are deployable.

The plugin is using JMX to communicate with JBoss AS so there is possible to implement other features.

Supported versions

The plugin was tested on JBoss AS versions:

  • 4.0.5.GA
  • 4.2.2.GA

I'm looking for feedback if the plugin works with other versions as well.

Requirements

Recommended version of the Hudson is 1.355.

Known issues

  • There is a problem to add more then one step in build procedure at once. This problem is related to issue HUDSON-5028 and be managed in jboss component issue HUDSON-5635. Current workaround is to create one step save configuration and add another step by edit job configuration and again. Sorry for that but couldn't find quicker solution at this moment. (It looks like the problem not occuring in 1.355 version of Hudson)
  • threre is a problem with version of log4j. The issue is related to HUDSON-4433 and be managed in jboss component in HUDSON-5709. (This issue is not occuring in Hudson 1.355)

    How Do I use this plugin? I installed it on my Hudson and was able to see it under the main Hudson configuration where I set JBoss Home etc.

    But I am unable to see anything related to the JBoss Plugin while configuring any jobs.

    I am using Hudson 1.355 with JBoss Management Plugin 1.0.3  on CentOs.

    Thanks,

    Chris.

    Question about using jboss management with nodes. Seems like we can only use this plugin for local installations of hudson?
