Hi Norman and Sam, first I congratulate on your new book. I have a two questions in JBoss and I think here only i should ask question to participate in "JavaRanch Book Promotion".
Qs1 : How to configure Jboss to run on some other port (except 8080) so that in URL to access our web application we need not mention the port number, also we have not to use port 80 ( which helps in achieving this functionality ). So basically my question is how to set Port redirection in Jboss ?
Qs2 : Can we run more than one instance of Jboss on same machine, like we can do for tomcat by setting Catalina home and catalina base ?
To change the HTTP connector for Tomcat (the web container deployed with JBoss) update the value in %JBOSS_HOME%/server/[server_name]/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml.
Yes you can run as many instances of JBoss as you like, so long as there are no port conflicts. The easieast way to do that is to use the ServiceBindingManager MBean. Have a look at the sample-bindings.xml file which comes with the JBoss examples.
