What is the initial output from your run script? It should be something like:
JBoss Bootstrap Environment
JAVA_OPTS: -Djava.io.tmpdir=/jetty -Dprogram.name=run.sh
Please post it here as a starting point for diagnosis.
The initial run script output is as follows:
JBoss Bootstrap Environment
JAVA_OPTS: -server -Dprogram.name=run.sh
Subsequent run script output which might be useful for diagnosis:

OK. The environment looks fairly normal for a Linux JDK 1.4.1 result.
Can you explain why you create a link to a JBoss compiere instance?
Normally, there should already exist a server/default/conf directory. If you could revert to the standard distribution and we can have a look at the server.log from this when you run it, that might be helpful. Also, with the standard distribution, try just:
I wouldn't expect anything to be different there, but let's try to minimise differences.
The link was created because 'conf' was not in ../server/default directory.
My JBOSS was installed automatically when I installed Compiere. Should 'conf' folder have existed in the directory?
There should definitely have been a conf directory, a lib directory, a log directory and a deploy directory in default. There should probably be a data directory for housing the hypersonic database that ships by default with JBoss. So it is a bit worrying that you didn't have the default conf which sets up much of the standard bootstrap services.
Try getting a clean JBoss 3.2.x distribution so at least we know the configs are ok out of the box, so to speak.
