    Tip: Stable Environment for XP

    Markus Fahrni Newbie

      Just in case anyone is desparate with installation issues on XP...

      Starting with the latest releases I had several difficulties with various mixes of installations of JBossIDE and Eclipse, including:
      - whitespace issue with HTML-Files (see also Fibo tutorial)
      - missing classes
      - not able to start JBoss Server from within JBoss IDE

      The so far stable setup is for me:
      - Windows XP SP2
      - JDK 1.5.0 (!!!)
      - Eclipe 3.0.2
      - JBoss Server 4.0.1sp1
      - JBoss IDE 1.4.0

      Make sure that the Java environment is consistent:
      - check PATH variable to point to JDK 1.5.0
      - set JAVA_HOME to point to JDK 1.5.0
      - delete all Java executables from the windows folders
      - use regedit to set all Java keys to point to JDK 1.5.0
      (for example 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\Current Version')

      Of course the IDE might be outdated, but at least it works (so far...), and I have several other plugins installed. If anyone has the same setup, pls. tell your experience.

      So long, MF
