    Cannot start Jboss

    jj nn Newbie

      Hello, I have been working for a month succesfully with JBoss, but now I can't start the server. I downloaded a clean distribution of jboss-4.2.3.GA application server, and when I try to run with the command java -jar run.jar It seems to start but I am not able to watch http://localhost:8080. When I put this address in the browser it takes thinking so it seems that something is happening but I can't see the jboss web page. I disabled my firewall and my antivirus and it happened the same. The console shows "started in" and the minutes, but it dosn't work in the browser. I have tried it from Eclipse IDE with and without jboss tools and it hungs.

      I don't know wha else I can do. does anyone have any idea of what I can do?

      Thanks in advance

          From where are you trying to start it? Is it from the IDE or the command prompt. I would recommend starting it from the command prompt to ensure that everything is fine. To start it from the command prompt, you have to use the run.bat (or run.sh for Unix).

            Thanks for the answer. I have just tried to start it from the run.bat (I have windows XP) and it seems to start but it doen´t load localhost al 8080 port (http://localhost:8080). I have saved the output of jboss when starting and I show it here if it helps. The browser seems to hung.

              Hi all,

              After JBoss start complete, you can try again in your browser !

                Going by the logs, the server should be available at http://localhost:8080. When you access the page, does it hang or does it show an error? Also do you have any firewalls or anti-virus running on your system, which might be blocking the requests?

                What does the following output

                telnet localhost 8080

                  Thanks for your answer. It hangs when I set http://localhost:8080 in the browser. I have a firewall and an antivirus, but I have disabled both to try and it happened the same. I don't know what else I can do.

                    When I type "telnet localhost 8080" after running jboss with run.exe I get a black screen with a blinking underscore (A _ which apperas and dissapears). But it doen'st work either in the browser.

                      Your description of what happens when you run telnet tells me that the port (8080) is open and JBossAS is listening to it.

                      I can think of only two things that could possibly be wrong.

                      1) Are you running your browser on the same system that is running JBossAS, and are you using the exact url: "http://localhost:8080"?

                      2) Have you "locked" the command prompt window by accidentally selecting some text in the window? As long as the text is selected, any attempt by an application to write to stdout will cause the application to hang until the text is unselected.

                        Thanks Peter for your answer, but I'm running jboss in my local PC (I have only one at home) and I have written "http://localhost:8080" in the browser (I have just copied it now from there). I haven't either selected anything in the window, and I have tried to access several times either in Internet Explorer or in Mozilla Firefox.
                        I have to say that when I try to start jboss the browser seems to hang when I try to access localhost at 8080, but when jboss is off it shows an error that this page doesn't exist, so I know that jboss is working but not properly.

                          Hmm. This problems defies all logic. Here are some more things to try. Yes, they are strange, but so is the problem you are encountering.

                          1) Get both the JDK and JBossAS out of paths that have spaces in their names. I have my JDK at c:\apps\java\jdk-1.6.0_10, and JBossAS at f:\opt\jboss\jb-ss-4.2.3.GA. You do not have to re-install the JDK - just move (or copy it) and change JAVA_HOME.

                          2) There are two 4.2.3 binary downloads - one for JDK 5 and one for JDK 6. Did you get the right one?

                          3) If you have the JDK6 variant of 4.2.3, try installing and using JDK 1.6.0_07.

                          4) Try installing JDK and the JDK 5 binary of 4.2.3, and see if that works.

                          5) Try running using "run -b". Then you can try using the URLs "http://localhost:8080" and "http://yourhostname"8080".

                            This is in addition to what Peter said.

                            You mentioned that:

                            I have a firewall and an antivirus, but I have disabled both to try and it happened the same.

                            I had once observed with my local setup that even if i disable the anti-virus, for some reason the corresponding service(s) in the Windows panel were still running. So i would recommend that you check the Windows Services panel to check that the firewall, anti-virus services are indeed stopped.

                              Sorry Peter but none of this tests worked. I'm starting to think that something is wrong with the 8080 port of my computer. I have wrtitten netstat -an in my computer without starting jboss but there is nothing listening on this port. Is there any other port which can make any interference in jboss?
                              On the other hand I have Java JDK 6 and this jboss, and I have tried others and happen the same.

                                What happens if you use these urls:



                                Also, try this. Open another command prompt at the jboss_home/bin directory and enter:

                                twiddle get "jboss.system:type=Server"

                                If none of the above works, then I would suspect something is wrong on your PC and suggest you try on anther PC. I have run JBossAS on dozens of different Windows boxes using XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, many using both 32-bit and 64-bit OSes and JVMs without a problem.

                                  Hi again, thanks for your answers, but when I have tried it seem to happen the same. I have disabled the antivirus and the firewall (including services) and have gotten the same result. I have tried witrin this addreses and the comand and I got no answer.
                                  I have tried to use a program called CruiseControl which works al 8080 port as well, and it doesn't load completely, it happens the same, but there's nothing listening at port 8080. It's everything very extrange. I can't change of PC because this is the only one I have at home, and I can't format it right now.

                                    If the twiddle command did not work, then port 1099 is also not working. This leads me to believe that none of your ports are working. Is there any other software you are using where you could try out a port. Things like IIS, Apache HTTP Server, SQL Server, MySQL?

                                    If you look at the properties of your network connection, what services are installed? This should include things such as "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". Please post a list of all of the items (please use the exact names as they appear in the properties dialog).

                                    Another thing to try is get the listdlls utility from sysinternals (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896656.aspx). With JBossAS running, open a command prompt and enter "listdlls java". Post the full output.
