Membrane ESB as a a JBoss Service
Membrane ESB can be installed as a JBoss Service providing the following benefits:
- JBoss can startup and shutdown the router as needed.
- The router runs in the same VM as JBoss and no extra VM is needed.
- Deployment fits for production in a data center.
Getting the MBean for the router and installing it in JBoss requires the following steps:
1. Get the SAR
Download the .sar file from
or checkout the source from https://github.com/membrane/service-proxy/ and build it yourself.
2. Deploying the SAR in JBoss
Copy the router-service.sar archive into the JBoss deployment directory located at
Take a look at the logs of JBoss and you will notice that the router have been started. To test the router open the following URL in your browser:
Hint: If the router doesn't start make sure that the port 2000 is not bound by another application.
Configuring the Router Service
The router is configured by the rules.xml and the monitor-beans.xml files. They are located in the SAR archive. To open the archive simply rename it into a zip file (e.g. router-service.zip). A description how to modify the configuration files can be found here.
