How can I tell if jboss is running?


[Note: in v22 Apache Tomcat is used instead of jboss, but all of the commands below remain the same.]

Either of these commands should return content with "jboss" in it if jboss is running:
>> ps -ef | grep jboss
>> ps -ef | grep "/a.._1/product/local/java/bin/java"

* Try to telnet to the jboss port:
>> telnet localhost 1891

* Check if the jboss log is being updated:
>> jlog
>> tail -f server.log

* To check if jboss is answering use this command:

>>wget http://localhost:1891/rest-dlf/test

It creates a file named test that contains the jboss answer.

Additional Information

If JBoss is running on the wrong port, consult Article rest-dlf connecting on 1892 rather than 1891 for how to change it.
