It sounds like the version of jboss you have
was compiled with jdk1.3
You can get a copy from cvs and compile for 1.4
cvs co ... -r JBoss_3_2_0 branch-3.2
will get you jboss-3.2.0
You then do
./build.sh or build.bat
The distribution will be created in the output folder.
I tried downloading from cvs at home, but it would not build (I'm using Windows Me..) And at work, I could not get connected to the cvs repository - I'm assuming the firewall is blocking it.
The version of Jboss I'm using is the standard 3.2.0 binary download dated 4/11.
Would it be possible to provide a compiled version for JDK1.4 as well?
