The only time I've seen this error is if I actually rename or remove the startup jar file bin/run.jar.
I would check to make sure the file listed actually exists on your machine. If it doesn't exist, I would move to figure out why not.
Again, I was only able to recreate this error by manually renaming my bin/run.jar to something else.
Thanks for the reply. The run.jar is there and I can invoke it manually to start the server. I found the problem, but I don't know what's causing it.
I had the server installed in a sub-directory under one of the projects in my eclipse workspace; <project root>/servers/jboss-tomcat/. When I try to create a server there using the ide I get the error. I unpacked the same server image again to a location not within my eclipse workspace/project, and the problem went away (the server starts normally). Any idea what might cause that or how to fix it?
I have the exact same problem, and the GUI seems to convert characters in the path so it looks for the run.jar in "/c_programs/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin/run.jar" instead of "c:/programs/jboss-4.0.4.GA/bin/run.jar". Any tips how to solve this?
I forgot to mention that my JBoss-installation is not part of the workspace
