    1. Click Window Show View Other....
    2. Select Servers from the Server folder and click OK.

    Some quickstarts require that you run the server with a different profile or additional arguments. To deploy a quickstart that requires the full profile, you must define a new server and add a Server Runtime Environment that specifies standalone-full.xml for the Configuration file. Be sure to give the new server a descriptive name.
  6. Configure existing projects for the new server. Because you do not have any projects at this point, click Finish.
    Modify resources for the new JBoss server
