7.8. Deploy the "Hello World" Quickstart on Your Test Server


  • Check that the setting in SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/samples/quickstarts/conf/ matches the server configuration (default in a testing environment).

Procedure 7.4. Deploy the "Hello World" Quickstart

  1. Check that the server has fully launched.
  2. Open a second terminal window and navigate to the directory containing the quick start: cd SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/samples/quickstarts/helloworld (or chdir SOA_ROOT\jboss-as\samples\quickstarts\helloworld in Microsoft Windows).
  3. Run ant deploy to deploy the quickstart. Look for messages such as this to confirm if the deployment was successful:
         [copy] Copying 1 file to
         [echo] No Quickstart specific deployments being made.
         [echo] ******************
         [echo] Quickstart deployed to target JBoss ESB/App Server at
         [echo] 1.  Check your ESB Server console to make sure the deployment was
    executed without errors.
         [echo] 2.  Run 'ant runtest' to run the Quickstart.
         [echo] 3.  Check your ESB Server console again.  The Quickstart should
    have produced some output.
         [echo] ******************
    Also, check for this in the SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/server/default/log/server.log:
    10:58:52,998 INFO  [NamingHelper] JNDI InitialContext properties:{}
    11:00:58,154 INFO  [QueueService]
    Queue[/queue/quickstart_helloworld_Request_esb] started, fullSize=200000,
    pageSize=2000, downCacheSize=2000
    11:00:58,186 INFO  [QueueService]
    Queue[/queue/quickstart_helloworld_Request_gw] started, fullSize=200000,
    pageSize=2000, downCacheSize=2000
    11:00:58,427 INFO  [EsbDeployment] Starting ESB Deployment
  4. Run the quickstart by issuing this command: ant runtest. When the quickstart is run, messages such as this are written to the SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/server/default/log/server.log:
    11:03:02,190 INFO  [STDOUT] &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
    11:03:02,191 INFO  [STDOUT] Body: Hello World
    11:03:02,191 INFO  [STDOUT] &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
    11:03:02,192 INFO  [STDOUT] Message structure: 
    11:03:02,192 INFO  [STDOUT] [Hello World].

The words "Hello World" will appear on the server terminal. This message will also be appended to the SOA_ROOT/jboss-as/server/default/log/server.log file.
