    JBoss AS7 did not start within 5 minutes

    Gunjan Bohra Newbie


        After Installation ,I run ant start.demo command

      and found following error on screen.

      "JBoss AS7 did not start within 5 minutes"

      I checked following

      1) I Checked no process is bound on port 80

      2) Run individual bat file (jbpm-5.2.0.Final-installer-full\jbpm-installer\jboss-as-7.0.2.Final\bin\standalone) did not show any error.

      3) No individual log folder is being created on following locatin :D:\NSF-E-Cap\jbpm-5.2.0.Final-installer-full\jbpm-installer\jboss-as-7.0.2.Final\standalone\log


      would you please help me to find out reason not to start JBoss AS7 services.


      With Thanks

          Check if your JAVA_HOME is set properly(should be pointing to your installed JDK on your system) . Try echoing JAVA_HOME value while executing standalone.bat.

            Check if your port 8080 is free or not.

              My port 8080 is free and JAVA_HOME is correctly set up (/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home) and yet I have the exact same error.

                This sounds as a generic AS7 Question. did you try running a fresh install of the AS alone? with none application deployed in it?

                  I'm dragging this thread up again because I'm also getting the same error and despite thorough searching I haven't found a valid answer for this problem.


                  $ netstat -an | grep LISTEN | grep -v LISTENING
                  tcp        0      0        *                   LISTEN      -

                  tcp        0      0      *                   LISTEN      -

                  tcp        0      0    *                   LISTEN      -

                  $ java -version
                  java version "1.6.0_30"

                  Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_30-b12)

                  Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.5-b03, mixed mode)

                  $ echo $JAVA_HOME




                  Starting AS7 on it's own does not throw any errors.  I'm trying to start the demo using:

                  ant -f build.xml start.demo.noeclipse


                  Which throws the following error when trying to login to the console as admin:


                  Action: 'org.jboss.bpm.console.client.task.LoadTasksAction'

                  Exception: 'class com.google.gwt.http.client.RequestException'


                  HTTP 500:

                  org.jboss.resteasy.spi.UnhandledException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Could not connect task client









                  I'm assuming the task client is failing because that follows AS7 in the demo startup script.



                  Buildfile: /u01/app/jbpm/build.xml



                       [echo] Checking h2 download ...
















                  BUILD FAILED

                  /u01/app/jbpm/build.xml:531: The following error occurred while executing this line:

                  /u01/app/jbpm/build.xml:555: JBoss AS7 did not start within 5 minutes


                  Total time: 5 minutes 0 seconds



                  Any help is appreciated.

                    Hopefully this helps others.


                    1. Before installing (ant install.demo.noeclipse), modify $JBPM_HOME/build.xml file with the ports you'd like JBoss to run on.

                    2. Ensure all environment variables are set properly and directories exist before trying to start.

                    3. Reinstall jbpm with ant clean.demo; ant install.demo.noeclipse.  NOTE: this removes the entire jboss sub-directory, so any modifications you've made will be removed.

                      in case you didn't solve your problem yet - can you post result of verbose ant? Try:

                      ant -v start.demo


                      I had a similar problem, in my case ant build was stuck at "Checking for listener at localhost:8080", repeated several times. Then I realized: I have JAVA_HOME variable set to Java 1.7, so I switched to 1.6 and it worked! Detailed steps for Mac OS X: have your JAVA_HOME variable set to output of:

                      /usr/libexec/java_home -v1.6


                      In my case, that was:



                      and finally: ant start.demo


                      Hope some of it helps.

                        Hello Sebastien,


                        try setting your JAVA_HOME to:



                        I know the symlinked /System/Library/Frameworks/... should work but I tried both versions and only one of them did. Which output does:

                        /usr/libexec/java_home -v1.6


                        give you?


                        Hopefully helps.
