update: I also tried setting the properties file as follows:
C:\j2eetutorial14\examples\common\targets.xml:10: The j2ee.home property is not
properly set in /j2eetutorial14/examples/common/build.properties.
Set the j2ee.home property to the location of your Application Server installati
On Windows, you must escape any backslashes in the j2ee.home property with anoth
er backslash or use forward slashes as a path separator. So, if your Application
Server installation is C:\Sun\AppServer, you must set j2ee.home as follows:
j2ee.home = C:\\Sun\\AppServer
j2ee.home is currently set to: C:\jboss-4.2.3.GA
Total time: 0 seconds
Some help here would be appreciated.
You are reading a Getting Started Guide for the 4.0.x version of JBossAS. Looks like it was written for 4.0.2, and based on the types of changes that went into 4.0.x after that, some of the things might not work in later 4.0.x release.
But you are running 4.2.x. The Getting Started Guide for that is at http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossas/freezone/docs/Getting_Started_Guide/beta422/html/index.html
