Looks like a corrupted download to me. Either that or the account being used to run JBoss AS doesn't have the right privileges to the c:\jboss-4.2.2.GA directory.
I would first try downloading 4.2.2 again, this time verifying the download by checking the sha1 or md5 sum.
I'm also a little concerned about the JDK being in the Program Files directory, spaces in paths can cause weird issues with some Java apps (I have mine at c:/apps/java/jdk1.6.0_22).
Thanks for reply. Still have problem. Would you please be able to confirm what JBOSS_HOME should point to? Should it be root JBoss dir (where I have it now: C:\jboss-4.2.2.GA), or elsewhere? Thanks!
You should not set JBOSS_HOME - the run.bat script will set it automatically. By the way, I assume that you installed JBoss at c:\jboss-4.2.2.GA, right?
Now on to the problem. Edit the run.bat file, adding "-verbose:class" to one of the JAVA_OPTS, something line this:
set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Xms128m -Xmx512m -verbose:gc
Then run it again, redirecting stdout and stderro to a file, like this:
run >> out.log 2>>&1
Then post out.log.
Where has the link for attachments disappeared to? I cannot add an attachment as I could against the original post. Also cannot paste text into the body of this message. Why can't I paste text? I must say, I find this web tool very frustrating to use. HELP!!
Make sure you click on the "Use Advanced Editor" link on the upper right-hand corner of the edit box. The "quick reply" editor has a limited set of features.
And I sympathize with your feeling about the editor - I have been one of its most vocal critiques. The only good thing I can say about it is that it doesn't suck rocks quite as badly as the SharePoint editor, or was it the other way around???
Actually, verbose output did not add any information beyond what I included in the original attachment (original post). Yes, JBoss is installed at c:\jboss-4.2.2.GA. So, I would be grateful for any new ideas. thanks!
The -verbose:class should have added a ton of additonal output - it causes the JVM to list every classl oaded and print the JAR it came from. Double-check your settings.
Thanks Peter. I had the setting slightly wrong. I am adding the attachment "out2.log", to a new post (as it appears that I cannot add an attachment from a reply??). It will appear shortly as new post (sorry, if there is a way to attach it here, I haven't found it..).
