In "standalone" mode each JBoss Application Server 7 instance is an independent process (similar to previous JBoss AS versions; e.g., 3, 4, 5, or 6). The configuration files, deployment content and writable areas used by the single standalone server run from a JBoss Application Server installation are found in the following subdirectories under the top level "standalone" directory:
configuration: Configuration files for the standalone server that runs off of this installation. All configuration information for the running server is located here and is the single place for configuration modifications for the standalone server.
data: Persistent information written by the server to survive a restart of the server
deployments: End user deployment content can be placed in this directory for automatic detection and deployment of that content into the server's runtime.
NOTE: The server's management API is recommended for installing deployment content. File system based deployment scanning capabilities remain for developer convenience.
lib/ext: Location for installed library jars referenced by applications using the Extension-List mechanism
log: standalone server log files
tmp: location for temporary files written by the server
tmp/auth:Special location used to exchange authentication tokens with local clients so they can confirm that they are local to the running AS process.
