I need to install Jboss, but I don't remember whether I have already installed it. How do I find out?

for example in Terminal:

sudo find / -name jboss

will list all files/dirs starting with jboss

I would propose to search for "jboss*" (with quotes) - at least on Linux without '*' these command finds only exact mach for string. – Lukasz Stelmach Dec 23 '11 at 14:34
