Sorry about the bad subject line, I posted before completing it. I was going to put:
ESB Test Example - JBoss error deploying properties-service.xml.
Thanks for your reply. I had copied the commented out URIList entry from the properties-service.xml that came in the jar - they had read:
<attribute name="URLList"> http://somehost/some-location.properties, ./conf/somelocal.properties </attribute>
rather than follow the instructions in step 2 of the ESB binary distribution Readme.txt which stated:
Edit the properties-service.xml in your <JBOSS_HOME>/server/all/deploy directory and add the following attribute entry:
<attribute name="URLList"> ./conf/jbossEsb.properties </attribute>
JBoss starts without error when I corrected this. Thanks for your help.
