Step – 2

Extract the zip archive somewhere,

$ unzip jboss-eap-7.x.x.zip

EAP_HOME=C:\Software\jboss-eap-7.0.0 (On Windows)
EAP_HOME=/<path>/jboss-eap-7.0.0 (On Unix like systems)

Step – 3

Start JBoss EAP as a Standalone Server

$ EAP_HOME/bin/standalone.sh (On Unix like systems)

EAP_HOME\bin\standalone.bat (On Windows)

Step – 4

Go to console

http://localhost:9990/console/App.html#home

You can’t see anything because you don’t have a user yet,

Step – 5

Create user, using add-user.sh/.bat,

joboss2

Username – jboss
password – whateverUl1ke
Type Of User – Management User (Basically jboss user will be an Admin User )
Group – Administrator

Now go to console, you will be asked for user/password, and once you enter valid user/password, you will be able to see the console.
