# cant get the 404GA running from eclipse IDE

Just starting out and have run into a problem

run the install for jboss 404 ga.

if i go to the bin dir and run by hand it starts fine. Kill server.

go into eclipse with 1.6GA IDE

I try and setup a server on the bottom line of the screen

vm options are

```-Dprogram.name=run.bat -Djava.endorsed.dirs=C:/Program Files/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin/../lib/endorsed -Xms128m -Xmx512m
```

and working directory
```C:/Program Files/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin
```

when i try and start the server from within the IDE it fails and I get

console error
[list=]
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Files/jboss-4/0/4/GA/bin////lib/endorsed

and the server wont run.

If i run the server by hand outside of eclipse and try - it claims (correctly ) that port 8080 is in use.

what am i missing - this is most frustrating. EJB3 may be the way to go but i cant get past the first hurdle.

Is there any one who can help with this - I cant get pass this stumbling block and use the blessed tool.

all i can see is the default vm args when you look at the ecllipse server

-Dprogram.name=run.bat -Djava.endorsed.dirs=D:/Program Files/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin/../lib/endorsed -Xms128m -Xmx512m

this looks like it has too many '..' before the lib. However if i remove this entrie section and save - it seems to ignore the next time you view the config.

Any ideas any one.

the server starts fine by hand from the 404GA/bin dir with run.bat. just not from the IDE.

JBoss doesn't like it when your path has a space in it, so in this case the problem is that you've installed it in the "Program Files" directory. I moved mine to C:\jboss4.0.3.GA and it fixed the problem.

aubrey_holland - you are a genius

cant believe how frustrating that has been. It works Fine the IDE we have a go. Thankyou for all of that. Cant remember reading that anywhere, perhaps a warning on the IDE site would be appropriate.

I cant be the first idiot to install it in the C:\program files location.

Thanks again from a happy camper!

I ran into this issue yesterday and found the same fix as mentioned the posts above but I don't know if the problem comes from JBoss or Eclipse Integration, specially of Lomboz plusgin I use to start stop Jboss server...

Anyway definitively, fix to the problem is to install JBoss to a simple path like C:\Jboss :)

This is an eclipse integration problem. You can install into a path with spaces (such as C:\Program Files\jboss-4.0.4.GA) and run without problems:

```[starksm@banshee9100 bin]\$ pwd
/Program Files/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin
[starksm@banshee9100 bin]\$ run
