Looks like a port conflict - you are probably running another server on the same port. Try stopping any other servers that run on your machine, or change port numbers in JBoss configuration files.
The strange thing is that im able to start JBoss server without any errors but when I try to deploy from Netbeans it tries to start JBoss again and then the ports are already used by JBoss.
Netbeans does not seem to notice that JBoss already is running, not even under servers.
I have the same issue.
I'm install NetBeans IDE 5.5 Build 200612070100 and previous have
installed jboss-4.0.5.GA, then I add the server in Runtime Window. I can
start the server without any problem, but when try to see the server info
it don't show the server status and can Restart or Stop the server. It's
like the server is not starter, but i go to the server console and the
server is running.
Any tips in order to correct this issue?
This is just a guess but I think the problem is that NetBeans is not able to manage or signal to/from JBoss. So it deploys the first time (starting Jboss) but is not receiving any further communication with JBoss and thinks it is not started.
The only clue I've found is that there is a Tomcat account that NetBeans looks like it uses to communicate with Jboss. The account name is "ide", and it seems to be supplying a hidden password. Perhaps resetting or recreating this account is the key?
I'm posting this because I'm having the same problem as of yesterday and looking for help on fixing it. Up until then, I generally had good interaction between Netbeans and JBoss.
I got similar problem. Update your netbeans to 5.5.1 Rc1 to fix it.
