    Installation Tutorial

    Sam Loy Newbie

      Is there one???

      I'd love to try your product, but the lack of decent docs makes it impossible to even get jboss to load, much less use it.

      I have a zillion errors, mostly involving UnknownHostException. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with setting "${jboss.server.url}" - among others.

      You could replace the current Installation Chapter with the following and have the exact same effect and meaning and save a bunch of bytes:

      "Unpack jBoss and type "bin/run.sh or bin/rh.bat" - make sure you have jdk 1.3+ installed"

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks, Sam.

          It is unusual that starting from a freshly unpacked distro does not work. Did you change the config? If so, what? Maybe a more practical way to ask this would be to post your errors/log, JBoss version, platform, and the changes you made to the config, if any. Also, check the FAQ forum.

            Only after it did not work.
            1st I determined java_home was not set, set it. fixed bunch of errs,
            then(all in default server directory), copied jboss-minimal.xml to jboss-server.xml. still beaucoup errs. finally edited jboss-servive.xml. because most errors contained "UnknownHostException" i chaned every occurance of ${jboss.server.url} to the servers' ip addr. thats all.

              You shouldn't need to edit the JBoss config at all.

              Have you had a look at the 'Getting Started Guide' from the Documentation link?

              Also is your host defined in the /etc/hosts file, this is a common problem on Linux.
