GridLogZ – Build, Install, & Configure

This screencast demonstrates how to build, install, and configure GridLogZ. It does not include an audio soundtrack.

Prior to the screencast, the following items were downloaded from the Red Hat Customer Portal (link):

  • JBoss EAP 6.0
  • JBoss EAP 6.1
  • JBoss EAP 6.1 Maven Repository
  • JBoss Data Grid 6.1 Maven Repository

JBoss EAP is available with a $0 developer subscription (link).

In addition, the GridLogZ source code was downloaded from GitHub (link) and a Maven profile was created with the JBoss public repository (link).

This demonstration was performed on a ThinkPad T420s. The fact that 3 JBoss EAP 6.0 servers with JBoss Data Grid 6.1 and 1 JBoss EAP 6.1 server were started successfully is a testament to how small, lightweight, and efficient the modern architecture of JBoss EAP is.


The URL of the services is currently hard coded (localhost:8180) in the HTML files.

The UI is a separate web application and in the absence of a web server (e.g. Apache HTTP), it can not be deployed to a separate application server due to the same origin policy (link). Thus, in the screencast, the UI is deployed to one of the data grid application servers with the services application.
