What is it?

This is your project! It is a sample, deployable Maven 3 project to help you get your foot in the door developing with Java EE 6 on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

This project is setup to allow you to create a compliant Java EE 6 application using JSF 2.0, CDI 1.0, EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0 and Bean Validation 1.0. It includes a persistence unit and some sample persistence and transaction code to introduce you to database access in enterprise Java.

Note: This quickstart uses the H2 database included with JBoss EAP 6. It is a lightweight, relational example datasource that is used for examples only. It is not robust or scalable and should NOT be used in a production environment!

System requirements

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.

Configure Maven

If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.

Start the JBoss EAP Server

  1. Open a command prompt and navigate to the root of the JBoss EAP directory.
  2. The following shows the command line to start the server:

     For Linux:   EAP_HOME/bin/standalone.sh
     For Windows: EAP_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
    

Build and Deploy the Quickstart

NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss EAP server as described above.
  2. Open a command prompt and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.
  3. Type this command to build and deploy the archive:

     mvn clean install jboss-as:deploy
    
  4. This will deploy target/jboss-kitchensink-ear.ear to the running instance of the server.

Access the application

The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/jboss-kitchensink-ear-web.

  1. Enter a name, email address, and Phone nubmer in the input field and click the Register button.
  2. If the data entered is valid, the new member will be registered and added to the Members display list.
  3. If the data is not valid, you must fix the validation errors and try again.
  4. When the registration is successful, you will see a log message in the server console:

     Registering _the_name_you_entered_
    

Undeploy the Archive

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss EAP server as described above.
  2. Open a command prompt and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.
  3. When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:

     mvn jboss-as:undeploy
    

Run the Arquillian Tests

This quickstart provides Arquillian tests. By default, these tests are configured to be skipped as Arquillian tests require the use of a container.

NOTE: The following commands assume you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Run the Arquillian Tests for complete instructions and additional options.

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss EAP server as described above.
  2. Open a command prompt and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.
  3. Type the following command to run the test goal with the following profile activated:

     mvn clean test -Parq-jbossas-remote 
    

Investigate the Console Output

You should see the following console output when you run the tests:

Results :
Tests run: 1, Failures: 0, Errors: 0, Skipped: 0

Investigate the Server Console Output

You should see messages similar to the following:

INFO  [org.jboss.as.server] (management-handler-thread - 9) JBAS018559: Deployed "test.war"

INFO  [org.jboss.as.server] (management-handler-thread - 10) JBAS018558: Undeployed "test.war"

Server Log: Expected warnings and errors

Note: You will see the following warnings and errors in the server log. Hibernate attempts to drop the table and constraints before they are created because the hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto value is set to create-drop. You can ignore these warnings and errors.

    HHH000431: Unable to determine H2 database version, certain features may not work

    HHH000389: Unsuccessful: drop sequence hibernate_sequence
    Sequence "HIBERNATE_SEQUENCE" not found; SQL statement: drop sequence hibernate_sequence [90036-168]

Run the Quickstart in JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse

You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts

Debug the Application

If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.

    mvn dependency:sources
    mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
