    hello world example not working

    Ken Dougan Newbie

      I am new to Spring 3 so I thought I would try out Snowdrop 2 on Jboss 6.  So I downloaded the spring deployer from http://www.jboss.org/snowdrop/downloads and selected the JBoss AS 6 with Spring 3. Seems pretty easy to install in JBoss's server/default/deployers/spring.deployer/ directory.  I did however bundle the spring .jars within the application archive as you will see below.

       

      I found a simple hello world example to try out: http://viralpatel.net/blogs/2010/06/spring-3-mvc-create-hello-world-application-spring-3-mvc.html.  However I could not get the example to work so I am frustrated.  I also didn't like that I have to do this all through eclipse.  I wanted to understand how to deploy a .war/.jar directly to server/default/deploy/.

       

      So what I did was package the example with the following:

       

      C:\MyProjects\eclipse\workspace\Spring3MVC\dist>jar tvf Spring3MVC.war

      If you need to see the source then go to http://viralpatel.net/blogs/2010/06/spring-3-mvc-create-hello-world-application-spring-3-mvc.html.   I didn't change anything.  All I did was create a deployable archive.  But it doesn't not work when I click on the 'Say Hello' link in the index.jsp I get the following message:

       

      message /Spring3MVC/hello

       

      description The requested resource (/Spring3MVC/hello) is not available.


      If I look in the Jboss \server\default\work\ directory I only see the index.jsp servlet.  So there must be something wrong with the deployment package and the spring .xml files.

       

      Does anyone have any advice how to fix this please?

       

      Thanks

      Ken

          Ken,

           

          The example does not use the deployer directly, so you can leave that part out.

           

          Please submit a stacktrace to figure out the issue. One thing I can see from the start: the example is using Spring 3.0.1 which is not working on JBoss AS 6 due to: https://jira.springframework.org/browse/SPR-7197, so please upgrade to Spring 3.0.6 (latest, which is always best).
