I am trying to install JBossPortal 2.2 using the bundle (JBoss AS 4.0.4 GA). One thing which is not clear for me, should i have some database before i run the run.bat file which is present in the bin directory.
When i execute the run.bat file, it throws bumch of exception and says JBoss server started in 31 sec: 49 ms.
When i say http://localhost:8080/portal, it throw HTTP 500 error but on the console i get NULLPointerException
[ERROR]org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[jboss.web].[localhost].[/portal].[PortalServletWithPathMapping][ Servelt.service() for servlet PortalServeltWithMapping threw Exception java NullPointerException.
Can someone throw some light if they have seen this error before.
Is the root cause of the problem no database connectivit ?. I wish there was some pre-requitises in the document.
yes, a database is needed, but there is one provided with the portal (hsqldb) and it is used by default.
should first look (and post) at the error stack trace when you launch jboss.
there should be no error.
may be also try with 2.4 GA version.
