J2EE not starting up

Hi all:

I've got some problem wiht J2ee as it won't start up.

I put down to the thread how and what I install for the PI, and the error log :

1 how and what I installed.

first Content server and cache server

then Maxdb with ID A12

then Gateway

i didn't stall Web dispather (would you please tell

me what it used for )

Then I install J2ee adapter Engine installation along with another Maxdb of SMD

after I installed J2ee, Maxdb(ID A12) doesn't work anymore , it couldn't be started up.

but before that, it could be started manually.

2 what I find in sap console management.

There are two sap instance one is A12(coustomised), the other is SMD(appear after install J2ee adapter Engine)

From the SMD instance with sap console management, I can see that J2ee server is running for all process.

but in A12 instance, all are running except J2ee server ,jcontrol.exe stays yellow. and maxdb of A12 is not running.

4 the following is the log:
