I had the same problem with JDK1.4 and I didn't find a solution.
Tried to start it using j2sdk1.4 and jdk1.3.1_03 to no avail. It will issue many exceptions and won't start properly.
Any help would be much appreciated.
(Win NT SP6 box)
I have been using jboss-3.0.0alpha with jdk1.3.1_02 for several months without any problems. I just tried to switch to jdk1.4.0 and got the exception mentioned above. Switched back to jdk1.3.1_02 and it works fine.
Ok, I got JBoss to start with jdk1.3.1_03.
I have both (1.3.1 and 1.4) sdks installed, and there's no easy way to switch completely between them. Even after changing every environment variable I saw, and a few registry stuff, I couldn't switch back to 1.3.1 completely.
I had to edit by hand the script run.bat so that any "java" calls were made to %JAVA_HOME%\bin\java.exe ... instead.
Now JBoss seems to start ok, save for the last line...
2002-04-09 16:01:51,265 INFO [org.jboss.system.Server] JBoss (MX MicroKernel) [3.0.0beta Date:200202210220] Started in 1m:26s:531ms
2002-04-09 16:05:58,687 INFO [org.jboss.web.catalina.EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX] StandardHost[localhost]: MAPPING configuration error for request URI
and still http:\\localhost:8080 gives an error:
Apache Tomcat/4.0.2 - HTTP Status 500 - No Context configured to process this request
(should I start apache first and JBoss later? or the other way around?)
If tomcat is aready started, JBoss throws exceptions on startup.
Either way, I get a warning:
2002-04-09 16:01:43,765 WARN [org.jboss.system.ServiceController] jboss.jca:service=RARDeployment,name=Minerva JDBC XATransaction ResourceAdapter does not implement any Service methods
Is this the reason why I get errors on localhost:8080 ??
(is that the entrance to JBoss too?)
I had the same problem however I am not sure it is a bug.
You need to use java 1.3 not java 1.4
Then for The files xerces.jar, jaxp.jar,xalan.jar you need to download from the ANT and XERCES distribution.
Place them in the jboss\lib\ext directory (or in your case jboss-xxx/lib/ext
This will work.
I've encountered the same thing. I can work around it with two jdks for now, but it seems like it would be desirable to have 3.0 run on 1.4. Does anyone know of a way to run 3.0 under jdk 1.4 or what is causing this or if work is underway to allow for running under 1.4?
JBoss3.0RC1 runs under java 1.4
Thanks Adrian. I had just looked at date and compression format and had overlooked the obvious (RC1 vs BETA). I see that there are some significant differences.
