Pinned topic Error running test server

‏2004-06-23T07:46:23Z |
Hi,

My WSAD test server always returns an error (regardeless of the type of
application (EJB, JSP, static HTML)). I am unable to get the test server
up and running. The strange thing about this, is that I keep having this
problem even after a re-install. I did already try with WSAD 5.1, WSAD
5.1.1 and WSAD 5.1.2. Changing the workspace doesn't help me neither.
Apparently there is somewhere on my machine some configuration settings
kept that keep causing the error message. (I already cleaned up the
registry between installs (or al least tried))
I think I have this problem after an installation and de-installation of
XDE on top of WSAD but I not quite sur on this one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dirk Maes

    Re: Error running test server

    ‏2004-06-24T11:45:51Z  
    First, I'm no WebSphere expert. But I think I recognize that it's trying to
    expand a variable named 'U' while "extracting configuration information for
    the Name Space" but has no variable named 'U' I know there are various ways
    of setting up variables in WSAD, but I'm not sure if this is the same kind
    of variable. I know some of the XML files used for WAS5 test server
    configurtations also have variables in them (like ${was.install.root}), but
    I'm not sure where those are defined.

    My guess would be that something, somewhere in your configuration, is typed
    such that it looks like you want to refer to a variable named U when in fact
    you don't.

    Regards,
    Brian.

    Does the workspace path contain any special characters such as '$'?

    Thanks Felix! Excellent question.

    I was getting the same error, except that my Illegal Argument was 'P'. My workspace was under the parent directory C:\$Projects. I moved my workspace out of there, and now my test server starts fine!

    Felix,

    Let me add another appreciation for your excelent question. It solved my problem too.
    I had all my WSAD workspaces (more than 10) under C:\$data\... and thus was unable to use the WAS Test Environment for a long time.

    Thanks!!

    ... also be aware, that the Workspace path should not include any $ characters
