If you have Eclipse Mars IDE with Java 8 and installed JBoss Application server version 7.x.x then you would face this issue because JBoss supports Java up to version 7.

If you check out JBoss community post: https://community.jboss.org/message/808212

There have been some changes in JDK8 that prevent AS7 and the current version of EAP6 to start under JDK8. We have many JDK8 related fixes in WildFly so I would recommend you use that.

As for EAP goes, the start-up on JDK8 is fixed in upcoming 6.2 release.


- Downgrade Java version to 1.7 or lower, or

- Install WildFly 8, the new renamed JBoss Application Server.
