Good afternoon,

In the past, I have done JEE development in a corporate environment (I
was a developer not an admin) and am looking to start my own web site
using JBoss.

I have found several tutorials on installing JBoss, but most do not
assume Fedora packaging.  Would someone be so kind as to point me to a
tutorial (or HOWTO) on installing and starting JBoss on a recent
version of Fedora?

I'm assuming JBoss is the JEE server of choice in Fedora.  If it isn't,
what would be the JEE server of choice?

If this is the wrong list, please excuse my unfamiliarity.  Any
references to a possibly better list, would be appreciated.

So, While WildFly is you best bet for a vanilla JBoss, many of the add on services are not packed with Wildfly, or use a later version of JBoss than is packaged with Fedora. While JBoss and Fedora play nice with each other, they are very much separate communities, with JBoss keeping its Platform neutral stance.

The most common approach is to use the upstream Tarballs, unzip, and go. This, of course, is not a complete solution.

I started writing an Ansible role for a KeyCloak (JBoss based Single Sign On Identity Provider) deployment.

most of the interesting stuff is in the  tasks file

Some of the operations it performs:
Fetch and unzips the tarball, based on version specified in the vars file.
Creates a specific user for running keycloack
Creates appropriate directories under /var for the unzipped code as well as the logs.
Config is owned by root, readable by keycloak
firewalld setup. I want ports 8080 exposed to the rest of the appliction, but this is not a production install. systemd setup. See the template file here:

Not done:

Apache setup:  port 443 to port 8080 proxying.
Certmonger for managing TLS certs.
