Configuration files

The default JBoss configuration set is located in the conf/default directory.

JBoss allows the administrator to maintain more than one configuration set. All one has to do is to copy all the files from the default configuration into a new subdirectory of conf.

For example, you can create a new configuration "myjboss" by creating under the conf directory a subdirectory called myjboss and copying all the files from subdirectory conf/default into conf/myjboss. After possibly altering certain settings in the newly created files, you can run JBoss with the new configuration by invoking the platform-dependent scripts and just passing the configuration name as a parameter, like this:

run.bat myjboss

There are several configuration files for JBoss. A description of each is given below:
