2.2.4. Install the JBoss EAP 6 Maven Repository for Use with Apache httpd

There are three ways to install the repository; on your local file system, on Apache Web Server, or with a Maven repository manager. This example will cover the steps to download the JBoss EAP 6 Maven Repository for use with Apache httpd. This option is good for multi-user and cross-team development environments because any developer that can access the web server can also access the Maven repository.

You must configure Apache httpd. See Apache HTTP Server Project documentation for instructions.

Procedure 2.2. Download the JBoss EAP 6 Maven Repository ZIP archive

  1. Find "Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.3.0 Maven Repository" in the list.
  2. Click the Download button to download a .zip file containing the repository.
  3. Unzip the files in a directory that is web accessible on the Apache server.
  4. Configure Apache to allow read access and directory browsing in the created directory.

This allows a multi-user environment to access the Maven repository on Apache httpd.


If you're upgrading from a previous version of the repository, note that JBoss EAP Maven Repository artifacts can be simply extracted into an existing JBoss product Maven repository (such as JBoss EAP 6.1.0) without any conflicts. After the repository archive has been extracted, the artifacts can be used with the existing Maven settings for this repository.
