I am currently preparing to deploy a JBoss AS into production for the first time. My Linux distribution is Ubuntu Server 8.10 . My original plan was to use aptitude to install JBoss. Currently JBoss AS 4 is the highest version available and my requirements are to use JBoss AS 5. So, I will need to install this manually.
I ask the following because I am under the belief that most of the automated installs using tools like apt-get and aptitude do all sorts of modifications, different than what you see from downloading the JBoss AS standalone.
- What is the best way to layout my directory structure?
- What about logs, should they map to any particular location?
- What is the best way to manage start and stop scripts on Ubuntu Server 8.10 for a Java Application Server?
- Any particular security concerns?
