          All you need is the *latest* IBM JDK filesets installed, and you should be good to go.
          Just watch out for AIX tar and GNU tar incompatibilities: http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=55007

            hi all,
            we managed to install JBoss 4.0 on AIX 5.3 machine and successfully startup JBoss. The problem is when i browse to http://localhost:8080/jmx-console. I hit OutOfMemoryException, any ideas what is going wrong here?

            please guides, thanks.

              Can you post the results of $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version?
              Also, any stack trace(s) in your server log might be helpful too.

                  Well, it does look like your IBM JDK filesets are up-to-date.

                  Are you absolutely sure that there is no javacore.txt file generated by the IBM JRE?
                  It would likely show up where you launched JBoss from (e.g. $JBOSS_HOME/bin).
                  If there is such a core dump file, it would tend to indicate a bug in the IBM Java Runtime.

                  One thing you might want to try is building JBoss from sources on IBM's JDK.
                  A long time ago we hit some strange behaviour running the binary distributions (built on Sun's JDK) of Jboss and Jetty on IBM's AIX JDK.
                  Compiling with the IBM JDK solved the problems and we've been doing so ever since.

                  Other than that, the only thing I can think of is that the version of the Jasper libraries you are using is generating servlet code (a .java file) from the JSPs that the IBM AIX JDK javac compiler just does not like.
                  Trying a different version of Jasper might be worth trying too.

                  Hope that helps!
                  Good luck.

                    Do you know where I can download Jasper library? I tried to search from www.apache.org but it's not there..


                    thanks.

                      The following is the excerpt from javacore.txt. Hope it can provide some hints.

                        Looks like you've found a bug in IBM's latest 64-bit 1.4.2 JDK for AIX.
                        I suggest that you open up a support case with them through your AIX support channels.

                        In the meantime, you might want to check to see if the 32-bit version of their JDK works (you should be able to install it on a 64-bit AIX machine).

                        As for the Jasper libraries, they are part of Tomcat distributions and might not be available separately for download.
