  • 4 Online Installation (From Update Site)
    5 Offline Installation (Download Archive)

    Environment Used

    • Java SE 6
    • Eclipse Indigo (3.7.1) IDE
    • JBoss Tools – Core 3.3 Final M5 for Eclipse Indigo (3.7.2)

    Installing JDK

    JDK should be installed with proper environment set up. Read this page for installing the JDK and setting up the environment.

    Installing Eclipse IDE

    Make sure you have Eclipse IDE installed. If you need to install Eclipse, you can read this page.

    Online Installation (From Update Site)

    Step 1:


    You can install JBoss tools via update site, simply right-click the link (JBoss Tools – Core 3.3 Final M5 for Eclipse 3.7.2 under Stable Releases Development Milestones) and paste it into Eclipse’s “Update” or “Install New Software” manager as explained below.

    Step 2:

    JBoss Tools installation is fairly simple. Start Eclipse then go to:
    Help -> Install New Software…

    Copy this link http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/stable/indigo/http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/development/indigo/ (the same link from JBoss tools site) for the Stable Release latest development release of the Core tools into Eclipse and hit Enter.

    Step 3:

    When the site loads, select the features to install, or click the Select All button. For our requirement expand the “JBoss Web and Java EE Development” and select “JBossAS Tools” as shown below.

    [x] Contact all update sites during install to find required software
    might take sometime and this is optional.

    Step 4:

    Click Next to view Installation Details.

    Step 5:

    Click Next to agree the license terms, and click Finish.

    Step 6:

    If you get any warning message when installing, click OK to continue.

    This will take few minutes to install the tools and once done restart the Eclipse.

    Step 7:

    Once JBoss Tools is installed, you will find JBoss AS 6 or later servers available in the Servers view.

    Right click in Servers area -> New -> Server.

    Here you will see list of servers that can be created in the installed Eclipse version. You will find JBoss AS 6 or later under “JBoss Community” as shown below.

    Now we have successfully installed “JBoss AS tools” in Eclipse IDE.

    Offline Installation (Download Archive)

    Step 1


    You can download the required version of JBoss Tools Update Zips (Archived Repos) for offline installation under the Downloads Section -> Stable Releases Development Milestones (Below screenshot not updated), but DO NOT UNPACK THEM into your Eclipse.

    Step 2:

    • Open the Eclipse Update Manager (Help -> Install New Software… -> Add… -> Archive…).
    • Browse and select the downloaded zip file and click OK.
    • Follow from Step 2 of Online Installation (From Update Site).

    I did as mentioned in the mail (Online installation). But even after restarting the eclipse, i couldn’t find “Jboss 6″ under the servers. “JBoss Community” itself was not available. I tried changing the perspective to Jboss. That also didnt help.

    Can you help please. I am using eclipse indigo



    First, thanks for the detailed post.

    I am encoutering an error. Could you please help ?

    I am using “Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers, Version: Indigo Service Release 2
    Amazon photo storage. Build id: 20120216-1857″.

    I am using “JBoss-6.1.0.Final”.

    I am trying to do the “Online installation” of JBoss Tools.

    In the “Available Software” dialog, I have tried the following 2 links for the “Work with” field:

    1) Development Milestones:

    2) Stable Releases:

    But they both failed. I got this error:

    “Unable to readh repository at
    No route to host:connect”

    Any ideas how to proceed further.

    I even tried the offline approach described here but in vain.

    I’m using Eclipse Juno. I installed JBoss AS 7 successfully via Eclipse itself, and I was able to see JBoss AS 7 in the list. Now the Dialog Box of Install repository asks for the path of the jBoss installation.

    I searched my entire computer, but could not find the path where it was installed. Any help in this regard will be great.


    You did not install JBoss 7 via Eclipse, you have installed only the tools to configure and use JBoss 7 in Eclipse. You need to download and install JBoss 7 (see http://theopentutorials.com/tutorials/java-ee/ejb3/how-to-setup-ejb3-development-environment-eclipse-jboss-7-1/)

    Thanks a lot Mr. Omar. That was my bad.


    Thanks for your valuable info over jboss and eclipse, i am doing the installation, and everything is going smooth i hope it will do as expected, if not will come again on this page to checkout what missed out. Thanks again.


    Yeh. Great. works fine. Thank you


    I hope you are using Eclipse. This is because it cannot connect to the internet. You have to configure the Network connection (proxy settings) under preferences.

    Licensing and pricing[edit]

    JBoss itself is free and open-source, but Red Hat charges to provide a support subscription for JBoss Enterprise Middleware. Red Hat allows the use of JBoss EAP for development, but to obtain support in production a support subscription is required and customizations are not supported.

    Related products[edit]

    These products are part of the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio of software,[2] or are included with the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform software.[7]

    • JBoss Enterprise Web Platform (or JBoss EWP)
      This software is a lighter weight version of the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. The key components are essentially the same as the full JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, but uses a slimmed down profile of the JBoss Application Server.[8]
      Lists of components[9] and standards supported[10] are available.
    • JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform (or JBoss EPP)
      This software is an enterprise portal with the core portal features of presentation, master page objects, containers, and a repository, and also an optional site publisher.[11]
      Key components:[12]
      • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform – the software infrastructure
      • GateIn Portal – both an enterprise web portal and also a portal framework to build upon.[13][14][15][16] GateIn Portal includes support for Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP), Java Content Repository (JCR), Single Sign-On (SSO), and OpenSocial gadgets.
      • JBoss Portlet Bridge – a non-final draft implementation of the JSR-301 and JSR-329 specifications that support JavaServer Faces (JSF) within a JSR-286 portlet. This software also supports other web frameworks such as JBoss Seam and RichFaces to run inside a portlet.[17][18]
      • Site Publisher – web content management (optional) (by eXo)
    JBoss EPP implements the standards for Portlet 2.0 (JSR-286), JCR (JSR-170), OASIS WSRP 1.0, and OpenSocial.[19]
    A list of components[20] is available.
    The GateIn project is a merge of JBoss Portal 2.7 and eXo Portal 2.5 that produced GateIn Portal 3.0, and also the related projects GateIn Portlet Container, eXo JCR, and JBoss Portlet Bridge.[21][22][23][24]
    • JBoss Enterprise Web Server (or JBoss EWS)
      This software is a platform for lightweight Java applications, but also handles large scale websites.[25] JBoss EWS may be deployed as a standard enterprise web server, a simple Java application server, or an enterprise open source application infrastructure.[26]
      Key components:
      • Apache Tomcat – including Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages
      • Apache Web Server – including common modules and connectors for authentication, caching, proxying, filtering, and load balancing (mod_jk)

      This software implements a cache for frequently accessed Java objects to improve application performance. The cache can be replicated and transactional. The cache can be replicated across one or more Java Virtual Machines (JVM) across a network. The cache can be transactional because a JTA compliant transaction manager can be configured and make any cache interaction transactional. The two types of JBoss Cache are Core and POJO, with the POJO library built on top the Core library.[30]
    • JBoss Netty
      This software is a New I/O (NIO) client-server framework for the development of Java network applications such as protocol servers and clients.
