    JBoss 3.2.x fails to start

    dchan Newbie

      I'm having problems getting JBoss 3.2.0 or 3.2.1 to start up on a Linux system. As far as I know, it's a clean box with kernel 2.4.18-14 with the only other app running as Open LDAP.

      When starting JBoss, it seems to hang when loading the WebService module, ie it hangs after the following lines:

      08:28:12,862 INFO [Log4jService] Created
      08:28:13,052 INFO [WebService] Creating

      In server.log these are the last lines:

      2003-10-10 08:28:13,039 DEBUG [org.jboss.system.ServiceController] Creating service jboss:service=WebService
      2003-10-10 08:28:13,052 INFO [org.jboss.web.WebService] Creating

      My configuration seems right:


      JBoss Bootstrap Environment

      JBOSS_HOME: /usr/share/jboss-3.2.1

      JAVA: /usr/share/j2sdk1.4.1/bin/java

      JAVA_OPTS: -server -Dprogram.name=run.sh

      CLASSPATH: /usr/share/jboss-3.2.1/bin/run.jar:/usr/share/j2sdk1.4.1/lib/tools.jar


      There are no other java processes running (checked using ps -ef | grep java).

      The minimal server configuration starts up beautifully, but both the default and all configurations stop when it attempts to load up WebService.

      Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?

          Check the log to see if there is a failure to bind to the address. Should that be the case, look for the problem in the network configuration. There are several posts regarding the binding problem in these forums. However, some log messages would be useful otherwise we're all working in the dark.

            Thanks for the quick reply jonlee, it turned out that the box had problems with DHCP and couldn't find its own host name. After hard-coding a reference into the /etc/hosts file, all was well, and JBoss happily started.

            Thanks again for your help!
