    Basic JBoss 3.2.3 installation problem

    jwithag Newbie

      Hello,

      Can somebody help me out.
      I'm trying to do a basic installation of 3.2.3 on W2K SP2
      After unpakking the ZIP file i'm runnen the run.bat file.
      A lot is happening (by the way, if I close this dos-window the shutdown process is running ??? so I keep the window open.)

      Then I try to run the JMXconsole.
      The below Tomcat error shows up:

      Exception report

      message

      description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

      exception

      org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

      An error occurred at line: -1 in the jsp file: null

      Generated servlet error:
      [javac] Compiling 1 source file

      Q:What is the problem here??

      thanks for any response

          Did you by any chance install your JBoss instance into a directory with white spaces in the path? Jasper is not very happy about that.

            (by the way, if I close this dos-window the shutdown process is running ??? so I keep the window open.) - Yes that is correct behaviour - search the forums for running as a service if you don't want the console window to be visible.

            Have you set up a JAVA_HOME environment variable?

              HI,

              Thanks Juha, I'm aware of this requirement/problem.

              Thanks Darranl for the explination abouth the shutdown process.
              I agree (after some nightly thinking) with your JAVA_HOME envirionment variable analysis. It is not set automaticly bij unzipping the stuff. It is also a little the lack of some basic installation instruction that I missing in the dowloaded material.

              Can you point me to a place on the net where I can find some (detailed) "step by step" installation instructions for a JBoss W2K installation?

              Of cource I now how to set W2K Env. Vars but what do I have to fill in?

                The steps basically are :-

                1 - Install a J2SDK in a folder with no spaces in the path.
                2 - Set an environment variable JAVA_HOME to the folder that the J2SDK was installed into.
                3 - Unzip JBoss to a folder that contains no spaces in the name.
                4 - Goto {jboss.home}/bin and execute run.bat

                I would reccomend that you use a 1.4 J2SDK.

                If you want JBoss to start automatically have a look around the forums for information on running as a service, it has been discussed quite a few times.

                  I have had the same problem...
                  The problem was that I formely installed Tomcat, and put some JARs in the lib\ext directory.
                  Solution: Remove the JARs files (except the one that where set during the java installation !!!) from that that directory and it will work properly!
