JBoss Application Server (or JBoss AS) is a free software/open-source
Java EE-based application server. An important distinction for this
class of software is that it not only implements a server that runs
on Java, but it actually implements the Java EE part of Java. Because
it is Java-based, the JBoss application server operates cross-platform:
usable on any operating system that supports Java.

JBoss AS was developed by JBoss, now a division of Red Hat.

%setup -n jboss-%{version}

rm -rf %{buildroot}
install -d -m 755 %{buildroot}/opt/%{name}

cp -R . %{buildroot}/opt/%{name}

install -d -m 755 %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/sysconfig
install -p -m 755 %{SOURCE1} %{buildroot}%{_initrddir}/%{name}
rm -rf %{buildroot}/opt/%{name}/server/*/deploy/ROOT.war

rm -rf %{buildroot}

%attr(0755,root,root) %{_initrddir}/%{name}

getent group jboss >/dev/null || groupadd -r jboss
getent passwd jboss >/dev/null || \
useradd -r -g jboss -d /opt/${name} -s /bin/bash -c "JBoss AS Daemon" jboss
exit 0

All you need to do is download the 5.1.0 JDK version of Jboss from Sourceforge, copy the jboss_init_redhat.sh from the bin directory of the zip file to your SOURCES directory.
