Working with this most of the afternoon and am pretty frustrated right now (probably just head home, drink some beer, and tackle it again Monday).
Anyway, I am trying to install JBoss Portal 2.0.0-FINAL from binaries to JBoss 4.0.3 and am getting a NullPointerException during the deploy process:
17:06:48,410 INFO [LayoutDeployment] found default strategy ...^M
17:06:48,441 INFO [LayoutDeployment] found: org.jboss.portal.core.theme.strateg
17:06:48,441 INFO [LayoutDeployment] done creating new layout(s), found in : p
17:06:48,441 INFO [ThemeDeployment] create new theme(s), found in : portal^M
17:06:48,457 INFO [ThemeDeployment] done creating new theme(s), found in : por
17:06:49,176 INFO [PortalServer] Added application /portal-core^M

17:06:49,597 ERROR [[/jmx-console]] StandardWrapper.Throwable^M
At first I thought it was a DB problem but all of that seems to be working fine. I am using Informix (not on the list of tested DB's) and all the tables are being created just fine on my DB server. I am using the InformixDialect for the hibernate config and successfully created a Informix datasource. Here is the DB info if that is helpful:
17:06:44,347 INFO [SettingsFactory] RDBMS: Informix Dynamic Server, version: 9.
17:06:44,347 INFO [SettingsFactory] JDBC driver: IBM Informix JDBC Driver for I
BM Informix Dynamic Server, version: 2.21.JC5^M
17:06:44,394 INFO [Dialect] Using dialect: org.hibernate.dialect.InformixDialec
As seen in the exception above it adds /portal-core and then gets the NPE on the jmx-console.
I am at a lost as to even do next. The exception isn't giving me a lot of information as to why it is occuring. I explored the possibility of it being a DB issue but all that appears fine.
Any suggestions/help/ideas would be appreciated.
Let me know if more info is needed.
