I spent a good chunk of the holiday weekend getting Portal to work. The first thing I did was download both JBoss and Portal distribution - but the way this was set up, you really couldn't follow along with the user's guide.
So I downloaded JBoss 4.0.3 separately, got that working good with no errors in the log and then installed the separate JBoss Portal and JBoss Portal Forums and followed along with the User's guide.
It sounds like you downloaded Both JBoss and the Portal. Take a look at the downloads area again.
Thanks for ur quick response.I downloaded and trying to follow the installation in the userguide. But, I am struck again at another place where I did not find any jboss-portal-2.0/build and jboss-portal-2.0/core folder.Can u plz. tell me about this?
