refer to attached which I screen shot while inside my Redhat
RHN subscription website & I chose x86_64 as the search
architecture & JBoss as the rpm name.

I'll need to download the latest 3 versions (I'll let developer
choose which version they want) of
A) JBoss EAP & its pre-requisites RPMs
B) Apache & its pre-requites RPMs

Q1:
What search keywords I need to enter.

Q2:
From the screen shot, are all of those search
results JBoss EAP?

Q3:
I found httpd24... & httpd-httpd ...   : are these
Apache RPMs?

rpm-utils package contains "yumdownloader" that can be used to do all you ask for.

A1:  normal english words are good.
A2: those are apache httpd packaged together with JBoss EAP offering
A3: No, they are packaged by redhat. Apache RPMs can be buitl from apache sources.

I am not a jboss customer.
The search is very noisy. If you search httpd it returns about 10 pages of httpd for irrlevant architectures, then some for yours, then again 20 pages of blanks etc etc.

yum search at least is limited to EL version and architecture.
or if you run yum reinstall it tells where your rpm came from.

# yumdownloader --help

So does the above command lists out all the pre-requisite rpms/packages?

Are you linux admin? Are you same person who asked the question?

--help parameter is typical to GNU utilities.
