    Need help on installing jBPM5

    iamnew Newbie

      Hi, I wanted to test out jBPM5 but I failed to start it up.


      All I have done is downloaded jbpm-5.4.0.Final-installer-full.zip

      Run ant install.demo


      Installation finished


      Open http://localhost:8080/, good, AS7 is running


      Open http://localhost:8080/jbpm-console, failed,

      HTTP Status 404 - /jbpm-console

      Checked .\Demo\jboss-as-7.1.1.Final\standalone\deployments

      Found designer.war.failed, drools-guvnor.war.failed, jbpm-form-builder.war.failed, jbpm-gwt-console.war.failed, jbpm-gwt-console-server.war.failed, jbpm-human-task-war.war.failed

      It seems all of the war files are not deployed successfully...


      Attached is the server log


      I mean, itsn't the ant script install.demo fool-proof enough to start up jBPM5 without any more configuration?

      If we are supposed to add jar, create dependence, etc. It would be best to document it in the install.html.

      Or it is just me?

      Appreciate any help

      Thank you!

          The default ant script should be simple enough and you does not need to add jar or anything.


          Maybe you can provide more detail about your environment like your OS, does anything use port 8080?

            It looks like jbpm is taking a while to deploy on your box.  Probably it needs to wait longer or your box needs more oomph to deploy faster.  The JBoss deployment timeout is reporting that it is set to 300 seconds, you could try setting it longer in standalone.xml.

              You didn't explicitly say so, but did you do an "ant start.demo" of did you just go into the JBoss directory and start it?


              Also, if you already have a JBOSS_HOME environment variable set, make sure you unset/clear that before doing the install.demo and start.demo or it might install stuff to your existing installation.

                Hi, yes, Timothy is correct. After increasing the default-timeout and deployment-timeout (not sure which one is actually needed) inside standalone.xml everythings working now.

                Except that not everything is straight out of the box, like I dont have drools tools installed in Eclipse (the ant script did install that for me, its just not available in Eclipse and bpmn files are not recognisable). Then I dont have the same package structure in guvnor like the one showing in the flash movie linked in the install.html. But yeah, its working now, thanks guys.
