Hello, folks. I've been experiencing quite a weird situation. It seems that JBoss doesn't like IDEA or vice-versa.
For the past year or so I've been developing applications on IDEA targeted for JBoss, and never really had any problems with that. I developed the applications on my machine and deployed on a remote server. I also used to debug my application by starting the server in debug mode and attaching IDEA to it. Everything was, and for this scenario, still is fine.
However, lots of people got involved in the project and now the remote server is reserved for "test" builds -- not for everyday development cycle. Each developer should now run the app server on his own machine. Now here comes my problem: IDEA (#957) simply dies whenever JBoss (3.2.2_jetty-4.2.11) starts to deploy an application. Simple like this. No exceptions, no stack traces, no VM errors. IDEA simply vanishes without any traces left. I'm running Windows 2000 SP4.
Maybe IDEA listens on some local port that for some unknown reason JBoss broadcasts to during an application deployment? Maybe it's something related to license checker?
Is anyone else experiencing something like this? Could someone else reproduce this? Please, help me track down what could be possibly causing this. Both Jetbrainers and EAP'ers comments are welcome. Now follows lots of info that could or could not be related to this problem. Hope this helps >.<
