Guys: Newbie around EJBs, I just downloaded the j2ee server from sun and i am trying to launch the deploytool but nothing seems to be happening, i made sure my j2ee server came up first without any problems and then in another window i am trying to launch the deploy gui but nothing seems to be happening.
It displayed the colourful launch gui and thats it nothing there after.
Anyone knows how to get around this, i am running this on a windows XP box

The deploytool does not need the server to be up and running.

Which JDK are you using? Upon getting the server to start, did you try and see if it actually has started by logging into the Admin console and the like? You might want to take a look at the log file to see whether the server has actually started.

Thanks for the input, I figured out what the problem was, my system was running low on heap memory, so i just bumped it up and I am able to bring up the gui. Where do i look for the logs, i found the logs for the j2ee server but not for the deploytool...

I agree. Here's the link:
