    Running ESB stand-alone

    John Buckle Newbie

      Extreme newbie, please accept my apologies in advance :-)

      Trying to setup and run ESB 4.0 GA in stand-alone mode. Followed all instructions in the Getting Started Guide with no problems. Get the following exception when I try to launch from run.sh

      java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jboss.soa.esb.listeners.StandAloneBootStrapper not found in ...

      What should my classpath contain to run the ESB?

      Thanks in advance.

          From what download are you trying this? If you are using the src distribution you will need to:

          # rename the product/install/deployment.properties-example to deployment.properties
          # change to org.jboss.esb.dist.lib=../build/jbossesb/lib
          # run 'ant dist' from the product directory to build jbossesb to build the product

          before you can run the 'ant launcher'.

          It should create the /jbossesb-4.0.GA/lib with in the lib directory the following jars:


          Starting from run.bat/run.sh takes care of setting your classpath.

          Good luck!
