JBOSS requirement for 64-bit SAS 9.3 - Can it run on Windows?

I know nothing about JBOSS (except that it bears some relationship to JDK).

I am trying to install SAS 9.3 and SAS requires JBOSS. But as best as I can tell, JBOSS does not run on Windows 7.

Has anyone installed JBOSS on Windows 7 in order to get SAS 9.3 running? If so, can you recommend a forum or website where I can get some help installing JBOSS (and any other requirement to get SAS going)?

Yes, the JBoss Application Server runs on Windows 7 (I've been running it on that since the first beta of Win7 was made available). The only thing you need is a Java runtime (either JDK or JRE). The SAS installer should either provide a Java runtime or check that you have one.

I have no idea about SAS, but since it costs $$$$$$$, I suspect you have a support contract which should provide installation help.

Installing JBoss Application Server is easy. It comes as a zip file which you unzip. That's it, no other steps required. The Java runtime and setting JAVA_HOME to point to it is a prerequisite. However, I don't know how the SAS installer packages JBoss Application Server nor what it does to install it.

(I assume by SAS you mean the Business Analytics and Intelligence software offered at http://www.sas.com/)

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
