2.6. Basic Configuration Issues
Now that we have examined the JBoss server, we will take a look at some of the main configuration files and what they are used for. All paths are relative to the server configuration directory (
server/production, for example).
The core services specified in the
conf/jboss-service.xml file are started first when the server starts up. If you have a look at this file in an editor you will see MBeans for various services including logging, security, JNDI, JNDIView etc. Try commenting out the entry for the
Note that because the mbeans definition had nested comments, we had to comment out the mbean in two sections, leaving the original comment as it was.
<!-- Section 1 commented out
<!-- The HANamingService service name -->
<!-- Section two commented out
If you then restart JBoss, you will see that the
JNDIView service no longer appears in the JMX Management Console (JMX Console) listing. In practice, you should rarely, if ever, need to modify this file, though there is nothing to stop you adding extra MBean entries in here if you want to. The alternative is to use a separate file in the
deploy directory, which allows your service to be hot deployable.
