i have downloaded JBOSS 5.1 and unzipped it to c:\jboss-5.1.0.GA. I have installed java jdk1.6.0_17 and i am using Windows XP SP3 (Dev-Environment) I have two problems.

I am not able to use it as a service. I get the local JBoss website ( when i start Jboss manually by running c:\jboss-5.1.0.GA\bin\run.bat. I can install the service (service.bat install) and it starts without errors but the local JBoss website ( is not reachable. I also tried the tanuki service wrapper without success.

The other problem concers EAR deployment. When I run JBoss (manual start) i get the following error for coldfusion 9:

java.lang.RuntimeException: org.jboss.deployers.client.spi.IncompleteDeploymentException: Summary of incomplete deployments (SEE PREVIOUS ERRORS FOR DETAILS):

I already tried to pass this to the JVM:


But it does not help.

I ran into that same problem. Open the service.bat file and look for 'set JAVA_OPTS=-Xrs' REM it out then save and close.

Below is a good guide on how to deploy CF9 on JBoss.

Hope it helps :)
