Guys,

I'm now in the process of installing JBoss AS on my Ubuntu partition. Googling did not bring any satisfactory results.

It's simple. Download the .zip or .tar.gz binary of the AS and unzip/untar it. That's it!

Yes, but to my surprise I did not find the tar.gz binaries in the JBoss AS download site. Here is the link.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/jboss/files/JBoss/JBoss-5.0.1.GA/

All I could get is the tar.gz format sources. Do we have to execute the build.sh from the sources?? or is the tar.gz not available? Can we also unzip .zip files in linux? Maybe I will try exploring it.

And even for the 5.1.0 version, no binaries in the tar.gz format is not available.

Downloaded the zip file and extracted it to the desired location by simply right clicking the file and calling Extract Here option. But after downloading this file in the zip format, it did not get downloaded in the /home/jothi/Downloads folder but rather it got downloaded to the /tmp folder. Any specific reasons?

Where the ZIP file gets downloaded to depends on your browser setting and also whether you selected "Open" or "Save" in the downloads dialog box. It sounds as if you selected "Open". Select "Save" instead - then it should go into the Downloads folder (depending on your browser settings - I send all my stuff to Desktop, but then I use Desktop as my inbox)

Once downloaded, in File Manager right click the ZIP file and choose Extract Here. Then take the jboss-5.1.0.GA directory and drag it to where you want it. I have mine at /opt/jboss/jboss-5.1.0.GA. (I also put the ZIP file at /opt/jboss/download/jboss-5.1.0.GA-jdk6.zip, but that is another story...)
