    JBoss&Jetty with IBM JDK 1.5

    Daryl Beattie Newbie

      Has anybody ever gotten JBoss4 to work with IBM's Java 1.5 JDK? I seem to be having many problems starting up the server; specifically related to parsing XML documents.

      Here is the type of info I get in jboss.trace file when it tries to start up (note java version and platform info is shown in case you wanted it):

      14:28:21,396 INFO [Server] Root Deployment Filename: jboss-service.xml
      14:28:21,400 INFO [Server] Starting General Purpose Architecture (GPA)...

      org.jboss.security.auth.login.ParseException: Encountered "<?xml" at line 1, column 1.
      Was expecting one of:
       <EOF>
       <IDENTIFIER> ...
      
       at org.jboss.security.auth.login.SunConfigParser.generateParseException(SunConfigParser.java:389)
      [...]
      



      There are more exceptions that follow; many of which are obviously caused by the login-config not being parsed.

      So far I have tried:

      - Looking for another config parser; maybe I shouldn't be using "SunConfigParser" since my JDK is IBM's. (couldn't find another parser... where to look?)
      - Forcing the IBM JDK to use the same xml parser as JBoss (either didn't work at all or it made no difference).
      - I read somewhere that it complains about "<?xml" if there is anything wrong at all with the login-config.xml (I have validated it, and was also using it with Sun's JDK and it was fine).
      - I have verified that the URL in the xml doctype declaration is reachable by the maching running the JBoss server.

      Does anybody know what my problem might be?
