    I hope someone can help......

    When I try to set up Compiere for evaluation, I get the attached stacktrace:

    My Server Setup than hangs...

    This has been happening irrespective of DB choice - I have setup both Oracle & PostgreSQL.

    I would appreciate an explanation of this issue, and how to resolve it asap.

    Without a quick resolution, I will have to switch to other solutions - I am working to a tight deadline!

    Many thanx,

      What version of Compiere are you using? 3.2 Community Edition? Professional Trial?
      What operating system and database versions?
      What version of JDK?
      Are you using the binary files distributed by Compiere, or did you compile the code yourself?
      At what point in the installation process are you getting the error?
