I am new to webMethods and have only taken a few courses. I am using the latest release and have succesfully got the broker and IS to start up (although there are a lot of error messages) after a standard install, unfortunately the MWS will not start.
I cannnot find the reason behind MWS dying as when I run it as a Windows Service I only get the following message in the event log “The Java Virtual Machine has exited with a code of 1, the service is being stopped.” – Not terribly helpful.
I tried running it through a command prompt however the MWS.bat command opens another window and the window closes almost immediately - I started debugging the batch file but this is going to take some time to work out all the paramaters and attempt to pause before it dies.
I used an External RDBMS connection to SQL Server 2005 and I think this may be cuasing the problems. Possibly some of the connection string or a password is incorrect. I am to naive to draw the conclusion that if Broker starts then so should MWS becuase they are using the same DB and credentials. Unfortunately at no stage do you actually test your connections when installing the product, this I found bizarre. You can’t even change it in a config file, apparently you have to do it through IS administration in the 7.1 version.
Anyways, does anyone know a quick way to debug the reason why my MWS does not want to start. Is there some admin tasks that I may have missed?
