Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform bundles H2 as an in-memory, in-process database. H2 is written in Java so it can run on any platform that JBoss EAP runs on.
h2-console quickstart comes bundled with a version of the H2 Console built for JBoss EAP. To make the H2 console run on JBoss EAP, the H2 libraries were removed from the WAR and a dependency on the H2 module was added to the
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file. The rebuilt console is provided in the root directory of this quickstart.
This quickstart demonstrates how to use the H2 console with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. It uses the
greeter quickstart as a GUI for entering data.
Note: This quickstart uses the H2 database included with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6. It is a lightweight, relational example datasource that is used for examples only. It is not robust or scalable, is not supported, and should NOT be used in a production environment!
The application this project produces is designed to be run on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 or later.
All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or later, Maven 3.0 or later.
If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.
This quickstart depends on the deployment of the
greeter quickstart. Before running this quickstart, see the greeter README file for details on how to deploy it.
You can verify the deployment of the
greeter quickstart by accessing the following URL: http://localhost:8080/jboss-greeter
In the following instructions, replace
EAP_HOME with the actual path to your JBoss EAP 6 installation. The installation path is described in detail here: Use of EAP_HOME and JBOSS_HOME Variables.
Deploy the console by copying the
h2console.war located in the root directory of this quickstart to the
You can access the console at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/h2console.
You need to enter the JDBC URL, and credentials. To access the "test" database that the
greeter quickstart uses, enter these details:
Click on the Test Connection button to make sure you can connect. If you can, go ahead and click Connect.
Take a look at the data added by the
greeter application. Run the following SQL command:
select * from users;
You should see the two users seeded by the
greeter quickstart, plus any users you added when testing that application.
Note: You will see the following warnings in the server log. You can ignore this warning.
