I just installed JBoss 3.2.4 on my Debian unstable with a custom kernel 2.6.6. I'm using Java 2 SDK 1.4.2_04.
JBoss requires 1 min 30 sec (!!) to start! On the same machine on Windows XP and the same JVM it starts in just 10 sec. I tried also on a Intel Xeon 2Ghz with Linux RedHat 8 and the 2.4.18 kernel (J2sdk1.4.2_01) and there requires about 32 sec. I think it should start up in less time.
Why this strange behaviour? Any other Java application runs smoothly (just like on Windows).
it is a clean install of jboss, any different webapps being deployed at startup? same jboss-default configuration on both windows & linux??
My install w/ a medium size webapp takes about 57 seconds. but it's got 20 Session Facades, and about 61 entity beans.
