    Issue encoutered starting jboss server within eclipse

    Jack Ling Newbie

      Hi All,


      I'm running on Mac OS X platform but I'm wondering if running on other platform having similar issue explained below:

      I'm setting up JBoss AS 5, Eclipse Eurpoa, with the latest JBoss Tools.

      I followed the tutorial, added the installed runtime and ready to "start" the jboss server in the JBoss AS perspective.

      After clicking the "start server" operation, console shows sequence of messages....until at some point a message comes up saying that the server can't be started. I clicked the "Details..." button and it says that the server timeout and did not start up within 50 seconds.

      That's the issue I encountered. However, I don't run into problem if i open the shell terminal and "sh run.sh" to start the JBoss server which runs fine without error message.

      your advice is much appreciated.

      thanks,
      jackling

          Hi All,


          I've just tried the same thing on Windows platform only to find that the same issue appears.

          Then, I tried a "workaround": at Preferences->Servers->Installed Runtime, this time I added a "JBoss 4.2 Runtime" (which is under the tree node of JBoss, a division of Red Hat) (INSTEAD OF what previously I've set "JBoss v5.0" under the JBoss tree node).


          Oh. It started w/ some errors and warnings but at least it finally reaches as the status of "Started".

          Does it mean that the only installed Runtime under the tree node of "JBoss, a division of Red Hat" work? Or jboss 5.0 not ready here or anything I mis-configured?

          For the jboss 5 issue, the last message shown in console before the timeout error is "Binding Transaction Manager JNDI Reference".


          thanks in advance,

            anything outside of JBoss a division of Red Hat is the Eclipse WTP provided adapters - all some that have issues of various degress.

            I confirmed recently that our jboss 4.2 will work with jboss5. We are working on having a "native" JBoss5 adpter in upcoming releases.

              thanks for anderson's reply.

              at least, I can confirm the limitations now.
              long for the coming releases that solve the issue.

              thanks,
