I am new to JBoss...
I downloaded version 4.0.2,
unzipped the files
and tried to run it with the run.bat command
I got a NullPointerException!
Apparently there is a class inside the run.jar named Version that is invoking a method named 'loadProperties()' that tries to read a file at:
The file is there, but for some unknown reason the Version class cannot find it... so getResourceAsStream() returns null
I cannot start the server
What JVM are you using? Also, post the full startup output.
