jboss-as-maven-plugin can't deploy to remote JBoss AS7?

I've tried for days to use

jboss-as-maven-plugin
to deploy web projects to remote JBoss AS7, but it didn't work.

Here is my
pom.xml
:

<!-- JBoss Application Server -->
<plugin>
<groupId>org.jboss.as.plugins</groupId>
<artifactId>jboss-as-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>7.1.0.CR1b</version>
<executions>
<execution>
<phase>install</phase>
<goals>
<goal>deploy</goal>
</goals>
<!-- Only remote server needs -->
<configuration>
<hostname>192.168.1.104</hostname>
<port>9999</port>
<username>admin</username>
<password>admin123</password>
</configuration>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>


Using this configuration I can deploy to localhost without
<configuration>
, even no
<username>
and
<password>
.

To deploy to my real IP address, I modified ${JBOSS_HOME}/configuration/standlone.xml, by changing
jboss.bind.address
from 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0 (to unbind JBoss address), so I can deploy projects by using:

<configuration>
<!-- 192.168.1.106 is my ip -->
<hostname>192.168.1.06</hostname>
<port>9999</port>
</configuration>


It works too, but by changing
<hostname>
to point to my other computer (in the same router) it doesn't work but that computer receives a request, and the request is cut by something. (I thought it may be JBoss)

The error message in Maven console is as follows:

Who can tell me is JBoss as 7.1.0 is not allowed remote deploy?

For some security issues?

Answer

It is definitely not a security issue.

The plugin you are referring uses the JBoss AS7 ability to deploy applications using the Server Deployment Manager (this is new feature in AS7). Previously the deployment was only possible via JMX console, which required the deployment artifact to be reachable by server (local file or URL).

You need to make sure:

  • 192.168.1.104 is running JBoss AS7 with Server Deployment Manager listening on port 9999.
  • The port should not be bound to localhost iface (not 127.0.0.0:9999 but *:9999).
  • There is no firewall between you and 192.168.1.104 rejecting packets to port 9999.
