4.1. Starting JBoss Fuse

Abstract

The default way for deploying the Red Hat JBoss Fuse runtime is to deploy it as a standalone server with an active console. You can also deploy the runtime as a background process without a console.

Overview

The default way for deploying the Red Hat JBoss Fuse runtime is to deploy it as a standalone server with an active console. You can also deploy the runtime to run as a background process without a console.

Setting up your environment

You can start the JBoss Fuse runtime from the installation directory without doing any work. However, if you want to start it in a different folder you will need to add the bin directory of your JBoss Fuse installation to the PATH environment variable, as follows:
Windows
set PATH=%PATH%;InstallDir\bin
*NIX
export PATH=$PATH,InstallDir/bin

Launching the runtime

If you are launching the JBoss Fuse runtime from the installation directory use the following command:
Windows
bin\fuse.bat
*NIX
bin/fuse
If JBoss Fuse starts up correctly you should see the following on the console:
      _ ____                  ______
     | |  _ \                |  ____|             
     | | |_) | ___  ___ ___  | |__ _   _ ___  ___

Launching the runtime in server mode

Launching in server mode runs Red Hat JBoss Fuse in the background, without a local console. You would then connect to the running instance using a remote console. See Section 8.2, “ Connecting and Disconnecting Remotely” for details.
To launch JBoss Fuse in server mode, run the following
Windows
bin\start.bat
*NIX
bin/start

Launching the runtime in client mode

In production environments you may want to have a runtime instance accessible using only a local console. In other words, you cannot connect to the runtime remotely. You can do this by launching the runtime in client mode using the following command:
Windows
bin\fuse.bat client
*NIX
bin/fuse client
