Using the Groovy Script

Extract from JBoss Wiki

This is based on this JBoss Wiki Page.

JBoss 6.x AS is distributed by default as not secured (locked up). If you want to work with locked up version you can try this easy way.

  1. Download Groovy script attached to this docment or check the latest version at
  2. Install Groovy:
  3. Run: groovy securejboss.groovy [JBOSS SERVER HOME]

You can specify more then one JBoss Server Home directories. In that case common/deploy content will generate warning because it already is secured. check output for possible problems (pay special attention to warnings)
Note: Always test your installation if it is secured properly. The script currently supports JBoss AS 6.1.0.Final and 6.0.0.Final. Check later for JBoss AS 5 and 5.1 support.
