JBoss the J2EE application server
I am from the JBoss project located at www.jboss.org. JBoss is a full blown
J2EE compliant application server. It is open source and distributed under
A large protion of our "users" want to setup their own "application server"
machine. This is why I had the idea of providing them with a ready made
distribution with the OS, the database (mySQL or postgres ...) , Java2 and
JBoss ready installed and running after booting.
Would it be possible for me to customize the debian distribution in a way,
that after downloading a install disk or burning a install CD they only need
to go through the installation process and end up with a ready-to-run
application server machine ?
A package like the one described would show the full power of the free
software movement: WE CAN bundle stuff to simplify and speed up the
development process for software.
All this are just rough drafts and first thoughts on this topic. I just would
love to hear from you what you think about it in general and to whom from the
debian project I should talk to.
