Also in debug when I create a new configuration and select it the first part of the log file looks like this: (no such method on a class in org.eclipse.jface:

!MESSAGE Problems occurred when invoking code from plug-in: "org.eclipse.jface".
Okay, I downloaded the code from CVS (btw - you should put in the instructions that the user id is anonymous and there is no password required). I launch as an eclipse application and in "Debug..." I can create a new instance of JBoss 4.0.x and set JBoss home.
Now to figure out where the change is or better yet - how can I package up the current cvs code and use it . Obviously someone has fixed something :-).
I have build the new JBoss IDE and installed it in a fresh install of eclipse 3.1 and things seem to be working now. :-)
Well, they almost work. I can unzip the file into plugins (fresh unpacked eclipse) and I can define the servers (4.0.2 and 4.0.3RC1) and can start them. However, when I would my way through the examples I find I have to load CORE and EJB3 to complete the examples and even though I load these and force them to not over write the existing code they break the launching of the server (both regular and debug). So now I have to see if I can get the EJB3 and any other source code for the IDE.
Also, 4.0.3RC1 graphical installer only created the "default" deployment directory - not all so the path created by the EJB3 plugin failed. Creating a link with the name "all" to the default directory fixed that. However, after I got a distribution build built I had to deploy by and and guess what - EJB3 support is not on the server even though the instructions say the graphical installer puts it there.
But we learn best by making mistakes. I just hope I can learn before my new project gets to critical stage ;-). (BTW: MyEclipseIDE does no seems to have good support for Java 5 and EJB3 either).
