When starting JBoss 4.0.3sp1 in the all mode which enables clustering a
parameter needs to be passed to bind jboss to the right ip address. When
starting JBoss adding a server parameter -b <ip address to bind to> would work
for this. I am not sure for stopping JBoss through netbeans, in the JBoss
start/stop bash scripts I know you can add a -s <ip address bound to> to the
shutdown line. In netbeans 5.0 beta-2 there is a field for host and port but
they are read-only and there is no field to add server parameters. JBoss will
not start correctly (clustering will fail) in the all configuration if the
address is not bound. Also there seems to be no way of telling where you want to
deploy your application to. For example with the all configuration you should be
able to deploy to the farm directory or to the deploy directory.
I filed and fixed the issue 70135 which avoids the mentioned exception.
However, it does not provide any new configuration possibilities in the IDE.
It's a matter of the future release(s) planning.
