Hi sreeramsunkari, Welcome to JavaRanch. I had trouble starting JBoss at first too. My problem was that I had the j2ee.jar in the JRE/lib/ext directory. JBoss has its own jar of the J2EE classes so it is important that you not have any of those classes in your CLASSPATH. Also, you must have the environment variable JAVA_HOME set to the root directory of the Java SDK. If you are using Windows try this: 1. Remove j2ee.jar from JRE/lib/ext if it is there (it won't be unless you put it there) 2. Open a command console. 3. type the command "set CLASSPATH=" 4. type the command "set JAVA_HOME=C:\j2sdk1.4.2" (adjust this to the root directory of your Java SDK installation) 5. type "cd C:\jboss-4.0.0DR2\bin" (adjust this to the bin directory of your JBoss installation) 6. type "run -c default" JBoss should start loading in a default configuration. You should see a whole lot of configuration messages and possibly some exceptions during this process. Don't be too concerned with the exceptions at this point they may or may not be a problem. After some time you should see something like "07:20:18,679 INFO [Server] JBoss started in 121s:44ms" letting you know that JBoss is running. To verify that JBoss is running. Open up a web browser and point it to "http://localhost:8080/jmx-console/index.jsp". After up to a minute, you should see the JBoss console page. Also not that you should not have any other service running on port 8080. So if you have Tomcat running as a service on your machine your machine you need to stop it before starting JBoss.
