Ok even I trying to learn something about profiling. What do you mean when you say i am not able to start the server in profiling mode. ? Does JBoss 5 have some in-build support for profiling? or you mean an in-build netbeans profile (I not used net beans so I don't really know)
I'm trying to get the Jboss Profiler to work - but that needs some additional works - and I'm still try to get it to work.
