I have been trying to install a JBoss 5.1 instance and get my application to work under it.  The application has been running for several years under 4.0.5 and is a strict EJB2 application with a standalone java app front end connecting with JNDI.   I had hoped to try migrating to EJB3 a bit at a time, there is no time for a full conversion project, and I need the old application to run as is until I can move parts over.

I got the server jar to deploy fine under 5.1 and haven't seen any errors except for:

Deployment "vfsfile:/C:/Java/jboss-5.1.0.GA/server/default/deploy/properties-service.xml" 
is in error due to the following reason(s): java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: 

Which some of the discussions I've found here seem to indicate isn't a real problem.  It isn't one of my xml files, but one that came with the install.

But when I run the application pointing to the new 5.1 server, it doesn't connect.  I don't see any errors, any messages, just an eventual timeout.  I was wondering if the JNDI providers have to change or if there is something I'm missing.

Not even sure where to go next.
