What are the steps to install JBoss BPMS 6.4 on Tomcat 8 (JWS 3)?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Red Hat JBoss BRMS (BRMS) 6.x
  • Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite (BPMS) 6.x


  • Documentation not consistent with JBOSS BPM suite 6.4 installation for Tomcat;
  • We are trying to install JBOSS BPM suite 6.4 with JWS 3.1. The installation instructions although (2.3.1 from installation guide) although says V6.4 supports the Tomcat 8, the installation section for tomcat only shows JWS 2.x and not JWS 3.1. So are the installation instructions the same or they different?


BxMS 6.4 supports Tomcat 8 (JWS 3) as listed in Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6 and Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6 Supported Configurations page. The steps described in BPM Suite 6 - Installation Guide are applied to both Tomcat 7 and 8, even though it only mentions Tomcat 7.
