Managing JBoss7: Staging Applications

Your colleagues are all stressed out, because the new build of your b2b app needs to be put on a staging server for your external partner to verify the recent API changes. How to get this setup and running without interfering with the existing production system? It's fairly simple. I'll show you ...

... with a specific port offset

Verify it has been deployed successfully

Grab a coffee and relax

Fairly simple, no?
