      Hi all,
      I have been having a lot of trouble to install JBoss. I have installed j2sdk1.4.2_08 and set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the bin directory in the j2sdk installtion. However my jboss installation reports an error sayong unable to locate javac. here is the listing:


      type Exception report

      message

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

      exception

      Unable to find a javac compiler;
      com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath.
      Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK
