Iíve seen some previous posts about similar issues so I thought this would be a good place to start. ( I have also posted on The MyEclipse forum)

Iím running MyEclipseIDE 7.5 on MacBookPro JDK 1.5. I can start Geronimo(
geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4) manually using the command line but when I use Eclipse ( without a project ) I get an error as listed below:

Here is the program args from the launch config screen:
/Applications/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4/bin/server.jar ólong

Hi Wade,
Your problem is in your -Djava.ext.dirs setting. Replace:

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home/jre/lib/ext

with:

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home/lib/ext

Similar problem with endorsed.dirs, but endorsed.dirs will be empty, anyway... Note that the above is not setting -javaagent. So, OpenJPA will not be operating in its normal mode. Start a server using 'geronimo.sh run', will start the server as follows:

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5/Home/bin/java -javaagent:/Users/kevan/Servers/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4/bin/jpa.jar -Dorg.apache.geronimo.home.dir=/Users/kevan/Servers/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4 -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/Users/kevan/Servers/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4/lib/endorsed:/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5/Home/lib/endorsed -Djava.ext.dirs=/Users/kevan/Servers/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4/lib/ext:/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5/Home/lib/ext -Djava.io.tmpdir=var/temp -jar /Users/kevan/Servers/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1.4/bin/server.jar
