Section Number and Name:
2.4.2. Installation on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6
Describe the issue:
Snowdrop installation process has changed for EAP 6.1.0 compared to EAP 6.0.1. The location has changed, it is not `$JBOSS_HOME/modules/' anymore, for EAP 6.1.0 it is `$JBOSS_HOME/modules/system/layers/base'.
Suggestions for improvement:
Change that particular sentence to something like this:
`Create the subsystem and Spring modules in JBoss AS7 by copying the contents of the module-deployer directory and one of the module-spring-2.5/, module-spring-3/ or module-spring-3.2/ directories in the $JBOSS_HOME/modules/system/layers/base directory of your JBoss Application Server installation.'
Are you sure it belongs to the base layer?
Not completely, but if you install it there, it works. I searched the documentation for the guidance, I found this:
As far as I understand it, the static modules should be copied to $JBOSS_HOME/modules/system/layers/base for EAP 6.1.0.
Hm, the snowdrop installer also seems to be putting this into /modules/system/layers/base so I guess it's OK
In reply to the description:
Please note, all the WKF 2.3 guides are available at http://documentation-devel.engineering.redhat.com/docs/en-US/index.html#Red_Hat_JBoss_Web_Framework_Kit
Note the change from "JBoss_Web_Framework_Kit" to "Red_Hat_JBoss_Web_Framework_Kit"
Verified in WFK 2.3.0.CR1.
