3.3.2. Verifying the Downloaded Files

download PDF
Use the sha256sum utility to calculate the checksum values of the files to compare to the supplied values on the website. The checksum values are also documented in Table 3.1, “5.1.0 SHA-256 checksum values” and Table 3.2, “5.1.1 SHA-256 checksum values” for completeness.


The command line examples given are accurate for most Linux and Unix operating systems. Mac OS X includes the equivalent command shasum -a 256.
If you are using Microsoft Windows you will have to download a third party utility to perform these steps as it does not include a SHA-256 SUM tool.
After you have downloaded the file, run the SHA-256 utility and specify the file you downloaded as the first argument as demonstrated here:

Example 3.1. Using the sha256sum tool on Linux or Unix

This example assumes you have chosen to use JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.0.GA, and have saved the file to the default Download directory. If you saved the file to another location, or are using JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.1.GA, navigate to the correct directory and execute the sha256sum command in that directory.
[Download]$ sha256sum 
The values generated by the sha256sum utility must match the values displayed on the Downloads page for the file, and those documented in Table 3.1, “5.1.0 SHA-256 checksum values” or Table 3.2, “5.1.1 SHA-256 checksum values”. If they are not the same, your download is either incomplete or corrupted. You will need to download it again. If after several attempts you are unable to download a copy of the file that produces a valid checksum values you should open a support case to report the problem.
The complete list of SHA-256 checksums for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.0.GA is listed in Table 3.1, “5.1.0 SHA-256 checksum values”.
The complete list of SHA-256 checksums for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.1.GA is listed in Table 3.2, “5.1.1 SHA-256 checksum values”.
