3.4. Creating an ESB Project

  1. Open the JBoss ESB Project Creation wizard by selecting FileNewProject... in the main menu bar. (Ensure that you have defined the server runtime and ESB runtime in JBDS.)
  2. Select ESB ESB Project in the dialog box.
  3. Clicking Next brings you to the JBoss ESB Project wizard page where a project name, ESB version and target JBoss Runtime are to be specified. Specify, for example, helloworld as a project name and accept the default JBoss ESB version.
  4. Click the Next button to move to the next step in the wizard, where you can select the source and output folders.
  5. Click the Next button to view the Install ESB Facet wizard page where you can view the ESB Content Directory. This folder contains most the of artifacts that an ESB archive needs.
  6. You can configure ESB libraries to the project by using the Server Supplied ESB Runtime. Make sure the project has the target runtime set and this runtime has an ESB runtime installed.


    If you are using JBoss SOA Platform 5.3 or higher, select ESB config version 1.3.1.
  7. Click the Finish button and an ESB project with the default jboss-esb.xml file will be created.
