Could you provide the Saros log? It can be found in the workspace of the project:
Also, are you using any other IDE plugins (especially ones adding support for other programming languages; those have caused trouble in the past) in combination with Saros?
When building sarosServer from Source I receive the following error-message

As an FYI if anybody to avoid any confusion: You do not need the Saros Server to use Saros.
The server you need to use Saros is an XMPP server. You can either use our XMPP server (
saros-con.imp.fu-berlin.de) or host your own (as described on our website).
The Saros Server is a separate component that works as session host. The feature is meant to allow for longer living sessions with switching participants (i.e. to avoid the session ending because the user that started the session had to leave). But it is not necessary to use Saros.
The name of the component might have lead to confusion as the concept of an
XYZ Server is used differently by other applications, often meaning the server needed to use
XYZ. So we are thinking about renaming the component to avoid such confusion in the future and will add a note the server description on our website.
