Hi All,

As i am beginner to use the jboss application server. I have a question regarding the JVM and JBoss . Will the Jboss internally contains the JVM or use it will use the JVM that presents on the same machine where jboss is present.

Thanks in advance for your prompt answer

JBoss does not have an internal JVM. It will use the one which you point it to. You can set the JAVA_HOME as an environment variable and JBoss will pick it up when you start it using the run.bat file present in %JBOSS_HOME%/bin folder.
