How Do I Run JBoss with J2SDK 1.5 Beta? (Obsolete)
This page is obsolete as J2SE 5 has long since gone GA and jboss has worked with this for several versions.
The releases JBoss-3.2.4 and JBoss-4.0.0DR4 run on Java 1.5 without modification.
Please report any problems you find.

This problem is still present with JBoss 4.0.0 and JDK1.5.0RC... don't know what causes it. It is probably an error in the webapp / ear file, but it is hard to tell what the error is...
Additional Comment 4
JBoss 3.2.6 seems to work with official SDK 1.5.0.
Additional Comment 5
I encountered the same issue, and after removing jboss-app.xml, it worked fine with no consequences.
Additional Comment 6
Even with jboss 4.0.1sp1 and Java 1.5_03 this is a problem. Removing jboss-app.xml is not an option for all of us...
Additional Comment 7
This is obviously still an issue with some versions of JBoss/Java. The root of the problem is usually commons-logging (why did they ever make a new version of that library? It was great back in 2002, now it is a pain in the ss for most projects, due to class path problems). Usually the problem can be resolved by fiddling with commons-logging.jar and/or other common libraries.
