    cant start JBOSS 404GA server from in eclipse - Help please

    Will Woodman Newbie

      this is killing all the fun. I have installed the JBOS 404GA server, and upgraded to ide1.6.

      so far so good. I create an enterprise ear app and tell create a server config.

      When i go to the J2EE view and create a new server, and i try and start it from witrhin the IDE i get the error

      java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Files/jboss-4/0/4/GA/bin////lib/endorsed
      Exception in thread "main"

      in the console. whatever i do i cant start the server

      in the open launch configuration section it sets the
      -Dprogram.name=run.bat -Djava.endorsed.dirs=D:/Program Files/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin/../lib/endorsed -Xms128m -Xmx512m

      even if i try to remove this and save it resets to this next time in.

      If i go to the ear project it has facets set for EAR1.4.

      anyone got any ideas how i progress from here.

      I really want to have a crack at some ejb3 stuff - but cant get past the first stumbling blocks.

          Aubrey_holland - fixed this for me.

          my error was installing the server in a directory with a space in it (c:\program files). This messed it up.

          I uninstalled and reinstalled into a dir with no space and restarted the IDE into a new space and lo and behold it starts when you create a server.

          I cant remember this being mentioned in the documentation at all and it might be prudent to advertise this constraint a little louder on the JBOSS ide and or AS front page.

          just to stop idiots like myself tearing their hair out.

          Thanks to aubrey. Much obliged.

          regards Will
