starting JBoss from the Command Prompt Output

Hello, I have never started JBoss from the command prompt, but I read an article that said if you cannot start it from within Eclipse, to try starting it from the command line to determine if you have an eclipse problem.

Also I noticed that the .class files were available after I ran the run.sh file, however, when I attempted to start the server on eclipse I received this message:

Publishing to JBoss v5.0.1GA at localhost... (Blocked: the user operation is waiig fr "Starting JBoss v.5.01 GA at localhost" to complete.)


I did run the run.sh file from the command prompt and this what was returned:

#!/bin/sh

Can anyone tell me what this means?

That's the contents of run.sh.. How exactly did you run run.sh?

from the cmd prompt, however, what I would like to point out is that before I ran this from the command prompt, I had no class files, however,after I ran it, I did have class files.

Thanks,
Michele

I assume you are running on Linux? Also, where did the class files appear?
