1.2. About the Use of EAP_HOME in this Document

In this document, the variable EAP_HOME is used to denote the path to the JBoss EAP installation. Replace this variable with the actual path to your JBoss EAP installation.

  • If you installed JBoss EAP using the ZIP install method, the install directory is the jboss-eap-7.3 directory where you extracted the ZIP archive.
  • If you installed JBoss EAP using the RPM install method, the install directory is /opt/rh/eap7/root/usr/share/wildfly/.
  • If you used the installer to install JBoss EAP, the default path for EAP_HOME is ${user.home}/EAP-7.3.0:

    • For Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Solaris: /home/USER_NAME/EAP-7.3.0/
    • For Microsoft Windows: C:\Users\USER_NAME\EAP-7.3.0\
  • If you used the Red Hat CodeReady Studio installer to install and configure the JBoss EAP server, the default path for EAP_HOME is ${user.home}/devstudio/runtimes/jboss-eap:

    • For Red Hat Enterprise Linux: /home/USER_NAME/devstudio/runtimes/jboss-eap/
    • For Microsoft Windows: C:\Users\USER_NAME\devstudio\runtimes\jboss-eap or C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\devstudio\runtimes\jboss-eap\
Note

EAP_HOME is not an environment variable. JBOSS_HOME is the environment variable used in scripts.
