2.5. Variable Name: SOA_ROOT Directory

SOA Root (often written as SOA_ROOT) is the term given to the directory that contains the application server files. In the standard version of the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform package, SOA root is the jboss-soa-p-5 directory. In the Standalone edition, though, it is the jboss-soa-p-standalone-5 directory.
Throughout the documentation, this directory is frequently referred to as SOA_ROOT. Substitute either jboss-soa-p-5 or jboss-soa-p-standalone-5 as appropriate whenever you see this name.
