Adichatz provides a easy way to develop Eclipse RCP application in JSE (CLient/Server) or JEE (Application Server) mode.

In JEE mode, 2 implementations are proposed:

  • JBoss 7.1.x
  • JBoss 4.2.3

No special skills are required to use JBoss in Adichatz. You just dowload and unzip a file and follow these simple steps.

The entire runtime configuration (datasource, JNDI, EJB deployments) is assumed by Adichatz tools.
