Best freeware - XML editor

As a software developer, I open XML files all the time. I a heavy commercial XML editor. But nothing can compare to a small, thin and free XML editor like 'foxe'.

A great feature is has is the alignment of long XML strings to readable XML format (Shift-F8). It help lot of times when the XML file was generated by some tool and was not readable.Homepage:

Best freeware - UMLpad

If you need to draw small UML diagram - you can use 'UML pad' tool. It is much simpler than more known tools like 'Visio' and it is free !

JBoss error: org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Error during deploy

From time to time, deployment to JBoss fail with strange error:

16:31:28,428 WARN [ServiceController] Problem starting service jboss.web.deployment:war=invoker.war,id=1958881146org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Error during deploy; - nested throwable: (javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: comp not bound) at org.jboss.web.AbstractWebDeployer.start( at org.jboss.web.WebModule.startModule( at org.jboss.web.WebModule.startService( at org.jboss.system.ServiceMBeanSupport.jbossInternalStart(

The way to overcome this problem is:
Remove the deployment manually (delete the folder)Full deploy the application againSometimes - even restart the machine because the deploy fails due to some missing resource (like port)
