Chapter 1. Installing Fuse on JBoss EAP

To develop Fuse applications on JBoss EAP, install JBoss EAP, and then install Fuse.

Prerequisites

  • Red Hat Customer Portal login credentials.
  • A supported version of a Java runtime is installed.

    Red Hat Fuse Supported Runtimes lists the Java runtimes that are supported on different operating systems.

Procedure

  1. Install JBoss EAP 7.2.5:

    1. Go to the Enterprise Application Platform Software Downloads page on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
    2. When prompted, log in to your customer account.
    3. In the Version dropdown menu, select 7.2.
    4. Click the Download link for the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.2 Installer package.
    5. Run the downloaded installer. In the following example, replace DOWNLOAD_LOCATION with the location of the JBoss EAP installer on your system:

      java -jar DOWNLOAD_LOCATION/jboss-eap-7.2-installer.jar
    6. Accept the terms and conditions.
    7. Choose your preferred installation path, which is represented by EAP_HOME for the JBoss EAP runtime.
    8. Create an administrative user and be sure to note this administrative user’s credentials. You need them to log in to the Fuse Management Console.
    9. Accept the default settings on the remaining screens.
  2. Go to the Enterprise Application Platform Software Downloads > Patches page and download the JBoss EAP 7.2 Update 05 file.

    For details about the update file, see the corresponding release notes.

  3. Install the JBoss EAP 7.2 Update 05. For example, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux use this command:

    bin/jboss-cli.sh "patch apply jboss-eap-7.2.x-patch.zip"

    The following response indicates that the patch is successfully installed:

    {
        "outcome" : "success",
        "result" : {}
    }
  4. Check the Red Hat Fuse Supported Configurations page for any notes or advice on the compatibility of JBoss EAP patches with Red Hat Fuse. If relevant, install any additional JBoss EAP patches.
  5. Install Fuse 7.6 on JBoss EAP 7.2.5:

    1. Go to the Red Hat Fuse Software Downloads page on the Red Hat Customer Portal.
    2. When prompted, log in to your customer account.
    3. In the Version dropdown menu, select 7.6.0.
    4. Click the Download link for the Red Hat Fuse 7.6.0 on EAP Installer package.
    5. Open a shell prompt (or a command prompt on Windows).
    6. Change to the EAP_HOME directory, which is the root directory of the fresh Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform installation.
    7. Run the downloaded installer. In the following example, replace DOWNLOAD_LOCATION with the location of the downloaded Fuse installer on your system:

      java -jar DOWNLOAD_LOCATION/fuse-eap-installer-7.6.0.fuse-760021-redhat-00001.jar
  6. The installer runs without prompts and logs its activity to the screen.

Next steps

  • Start JBoss EAP, verify that Fuse is running, and then add Fuse users to JBoss EAP. The next chapters explain how to perform these tasks.
  • Optional but recommended: set up Maven for local use with Fuse projects. This is explained in Chapter 7, Setting up Maven locally.
