  2. Use the add operation with the following syntax.
    /subsystem=ejb3/thread-pool=THREADPOOLNAME:add(max-threads=MAXSIZE, keepalive-time={"time"=>"TIME", "unit"=>UNIT"})
    • Replace THREADPOOLNAME with the required name for the thread pool.
    • Replace MAXSIZE with the maximum size of the thread pool.
    • Replace UNIT with the required time unit to be used for the required keep-alive time. Allowed values are: NANOSECONDS, MICROSECONDS, MILLISECONDS, SECONDS, MINUTES, HOURS, and DAYS.

Example 23.7. Create a Thread Pool using the CLI

[standalone@localhost:9999 /] /subsystem=ejb3/thread-pool=testmepool:add(max-threads=50, keepalive-time={"time"=>"150", "unit"=>"SECONDS"})
{"outcome" => "success"}
[standalone@localhost:9999 /]

Example 23.8. XML Configuration Sample

<subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:ejb3:1.2">

      <thread-pool name="default" max-threads="20" keepalive-time="150"/>
