    Server Start Error

    William Hastings Newbie

      I'm using the new beta release of the IDE for Eclipse 3.2. I opened the server view, then used the context menu to create a new server. I chose the path to my server root using the browse feature, so the path to it is right, but when I try to start the server I get the following error:

      The archieve <my server root>/bin/run.jar which is referenced by the classpath, does not exist. FWIW, I get the same error using the previous (GA) version of the IDE using both eclipse 3.1 and 3.2.

      Thanks in advance for any pointers you may have.

          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.

            Hi Rob,

            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?

                Hi again,

                I forgot to mention that my JBoss-installation is not part of the workspace
