OK. Things seem better but I can't add jboss  as a server. I did see the bug report at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=257823
however I'm a little confused as to what the correct solution is.

Basically in eclipse I get  this message:
Missing classpath entry C:\Apps\JBoss\jboss-5.0.0.GA\server\default\lib\mail.jar

when I try to add the server using application server directory:
C:\Apps\JBoss\jboss-5.0.0.GA

I assume from the bug discussion that the serverdef was still wrong.
I am replacing the current one with the one mentioned by wolfgang there at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=257823
hoping it allows me to add the JBoss server after staring eclipse with a -clean

no I'm still getting the same error trying to add the JBoss server.
Can anyone point out some obvious problem? thanks
Jeff
