3.2.7. Service-style Deployment Changes

3.2.7.1. Update Applications That Use Service-style Deployments

Summary

Although JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 no longer uses service-style descriptors, the container supports these service-style deployments without change where possible. This means that if you used jboss-service.xml or jboss-beans.xml deployment descriptors in your JBoss Enterprise Application 5.x application, they should run with little or no modification in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. You can continue to package the files in the EAR or SAR, or you can place the files directly in the deployments directory. If you are running a standalone server, the deployments directory is located here: EAP_HOME/standalone/deployments/. If you are running a managed domain, the deployments folder is located here: EAP_HOME/domain/deployments/.
