JBoss AS not starting up on Mac OS?

I downloaded the JBoss AS 7.1.1 from here.

Set up the JBOSS_HOME and other variables as mentioned.

After that when I run

, it gets stuck on the following:


JBoss Bootstrap Environment

JBOSS_HOME: /Users/pbane3/Desktop/Servers/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final

JAVA: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_91.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java

JAVA_OPTS: -server -XX:+UseCompressedOops -XX:+TieredCompilation -Xms64m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Dorg.jboss.resolver.warning=true -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -Djboss.modules.system.pkgs=org.jboss.byteman -Djava.awt.headless=true -Djboss.server.default.config=standalone.xml


Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256m; support was removed in 8.0

11:56:22,805 INFO [] JBAS015899: JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final "Brontes" starting

What can be the issue here?

Finally got the answer:

  1. Had to download jdk 1.7
  2. export JAVA_HOME=/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.7``
  3. ./

Hope helps the future readers.
