OS: Ubuntu 8.04
I have tried to start a JBoss 5. However, a lot of OutOfMemory exceptions popped out during the startup. So I wanted to
stop the JBoss server, but there is no gui for this in IDE. "Stop" button is disabled during the startup.
For the second time, I tried to set -Xmx=512m parameter (I admit I had no idea what I was doing...) and I started the
server again. I got an error message about incompatible minimum and maximum heap size (ok, no problem with this..), but
the process was not stopped, a progress bar in the lower right corner was still there saying "Starting Jboss Application
Server", icon in the Servers view was indicating that something was happening (though it was not), I was unable to
cancel this in IDE...
This issue is very annoying. If I cannot start the Jboss in NB, I should be able to kill it from the IDE at least.

Sorry for that. I will try again with JDK 5 and will let you know...
No, still the same problems with JDK 1.5.0_15...
Startup should be already fixed - issue 139628.
Yes, I see... However this issue is also more general - it is about the fact that you cannot stop server's startup (and
therefore you are sometimes doomed to waiting for ages till the server starts).
Then its probably not jboss specific. It's hard to anything during the startup because the IDE does not have any control
over the startup script - it usually start some daemon processes etc. As no real user reported this, I'm thinking about
enhancement issue type.
I agree - changing to ENHANCEMENT. You are right that this holds for other servers too (I tested with Glassfish)...
