Membrane Service Proxy can be installed as a JBoss Service providing the following benefits:
- JBoss can startup and shutdown the router as needed.

Getting the MBean for the Service Proxy and installing it in JBoss requires the following steps:
1. Get the SAR
Download the .sar file from http://repository.membrane-soa.org/index.html#nexus-search;quick~service-proxy-sar or checkout the source from https://github.com/membrane/service-proxy/ and build it yourself.

Hint: If the router doesn't start make sure that the port 2000 is not bound by another application.

The Service Proxy is configured in the proxies.xml file. It is located in the SAR archive. To open the archive, simply rename it into a zip file (e.g. service-proxy-4.0.7.zip). A description how to modify the configuration files can be found here.
