JBoss server start.

I'm new to JBoss and have been struggling most of the day to just get the server started. I've tried both 3.0.8 with Tomcat 4.1.24 and 4.0.0DR2 with the same results. Here is an excerpt of the errors that fly after executing run.bat:

This is followed by many more exceptions and the server never starts.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Figured it out. I had the j2ee.jar in the JRE/lib/ext directory. That's what I get for being lazy! I'm guessing that if you have the j2ee.jar in your CLASSPATH, JBoss will blow up also.

I also have the same problem, with the same versions of Eclipse, Lomboz & JBoss.

I think there's an extra j2ee.jar in the classpath somehow???

Not to beat a dead horse, but I'm seeing this too. JBoss starts from the commandline but bails in Eclipse with ClassCastException during NamingService startup. Jboss 4.0.1, Eclipse 3.0.1, and Lomboz 3.0.1. I've tried several server definition changes, all with the same result. I even copied a known "good" JBoss 4.0.1 definition from one of the previous threads, but no luck.
I agree. Here's the link:
