Chapter 2. Installation

2.1. Installation Options

Red Hat JBoss BRMS comes in two versions:

  • Executable JAR installer for installation on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 6.4.
  • ZIP file install which itself comes in two versions:

    • jboss-brms-6.3-deployable-eap6.x.zip: version adapted for deployment on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP 6).
    • jboss-brms-6.3-deployable-generic.zip: the deployable version with additional libraries adapted for deployment on Red Hat JBoss Web Server (EWS) and other supported containers.

Depending on your environment, you may choose the installation option best suited for your project needs.

Note

Red Hat JBoss BRMS is designed to work with UTF-8 encoding. If a different encoding system is used by the underlying JVM, unexpected errors might occur. To ensure UTF-8 is used by the JVM, use the following system property: "-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8".

Important

From Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6.1 onwards, you must have JBoss EAP 6.4 or better already installed before attempting to install Red Hat JBoss BRMS.
