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.
hi thank you for your experience about jboss configuration. i met the same question but when i copy j2ee.jar to my jre\lib\ext the problem is not solved. can you tell me the details steps thanks a lot! ps:i work under eclipse3.0.1+jboss4+lomboz3.0.1
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.
