JBoss SEAM Tutorial

I found a tutorial at http://docs.jboss.org/seam/1.0.1.GA/reference/en/html/tutorial.html

This tutorial recommends installation of JBoss AS 4.0.4 and the EJB 3.0 profile (installed using the JBoss AS installer); you also need ANT and Tomcat installed.

I am running Ubuntu and have Tomcat installed. ( Versions coming; I do not have access to the installation at the moment.)

This tutorial is from the SEAM home on JBoss, but it's using a rather old (2006 ) version of JBoss; is there a better tutorial?

My biggest problem as a developer is getting things like this configured so before I start on this, can you give me some recommendations of things to be sure to do or to avoid doing? I'd like to develop a good working style so that I don't need to ask for help to execute a tutorial because I can't get the required tools installed and talking to each other!

Which JBoss files do I need to download? There are MD5 and SHA-256 versions at this site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/jboss/files/JBoss/JBoss-4.0.4.GA

My goal is to work through the tutorial for SEAM. First I need to accomplish the steps of installing JBoss, the EJB 3.0 profile, and ANT. I probably need to update my Tomcat although I believe it is Tomcat 6.

Thank you very much for your guidance.

Regards.

I recommend getting a copy of Seam in Action. Trying to use an old tutorial is fairly useless (unless you really want to use old software, but I recommend very strongly against it.)

Also, the tutorial you mentioned was updated for Seam 2.2, why not use that one?

Thank you; that's just the sort of information I needed.

Where can I find the best advice for installing JBoss? Updating my Ubuntu if that is necessary?

Thanks again.

JBoss in Action, chapter 1 (it's a free download).

Or read this:

The original poster asked about Solaris, but I run Ubuntu, not Solaris, and the steps were based on my experience.
