Looks like something went amiss during installation. How did you install? Via the installer jar file or unzip the zip file?
The missing class is in C:\jboss-4.0.3SP1\lib\jboss-system.jar. There should be 12 jar files in the C:\jboss-4.0.3SP1\lib directory.
Perhaps a re-install will correct this.
Hi Peter - The zip file (jboss-4.0.3SP1.zip), which I think they need to redo. I don't see any files at all in the \lib directory, much less the jboss-system.jar (anywhere). Below is the extract list:
Error : C:\jtall\apps\jboss\jboss-4.0.3SP1\jboss-4.0.3SP1\client\jboss-common-client.jar file has been corrupted.
I think your download failed. Try downloading again, and verify using either the md5 or sha-256 checksums.
Pete - you were right. Don't know how that happened. I think it's started, here are the last lines of the output:

One more question, as a greenhorn, while I have you on the line. Can you explain to me what the difference is between JBoss app server and something like Tomcat? I understand the concept of a web container, but it appears that JBoss incorporates Tomcat. Isn't JBoss a web container on its own? And where's the GUI administrator now that this thing is started?! thanks much,
The simple answer is that Tomcat is a servlet container (you can deploy war files) while JBoss is a full J2EE server (you can deploy ear files, including EJBs). So JBoss provides a superset of the functionality that is available in Tomcat.
JBoss adminsitration is done by editing XML files. Application deployment is a simple as copying your war/ear/whatever file to the server/default/deploy directory.
A good place to get started is reading the Getting Started and Application Server guides (on the documentation page): http://labs.jboss.com/portal/jbossas/docs
Thanks Pete. I will start there.
