Guvnor 5.3 on JBoss AS 7

Guvnor 5.3.0.CR1 will work on JBoss AS 7.0.1!

A big thanks to Mattias Nilsson Grip, who has succeeded in getting Guvnor to work on JBoss AS 7.0.1 in the non-web profile and made a nice pull request for us. That's the power of open source at work :)

Based on that, it was pretty easy to analyze our problem with the web profile and produce a guvnor war that works on web and non-web profile alike. Look for the jboss-as-7.0 specific war file in the distribution.

We'll release 5.3.0.CR1 soon so you can download it, but if you feel brave enough to experiment with a snapshot, you can download a nightly build. Let us know of any issues you find on our user forum or in our issue tracker.


  1. The 5.3.0.CR1 release zip doesn't include the jboss 7 specific war due to which is fixed for 5.3.0.Final.

    However, it was build and it works. You can download the jboss 7 war here instead:

  2. Ok, I tested JBoss AS 7.0.2. For some reason the deployment takes longer so I got the following error:

    "Did not receive a response to the deployment operation within the allowed timeout period [60 seconds]. Check the server configurationfile and the server logs to find more about the status of the deployment."

    To fix this I added more time by editing the jboss-as-7.0.2.Final/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml file. I added deployment-timeout="600" to deployment-scanner:
