    Installation of jbp 2.6

    Christophe Marcourt Newbie

      Hello,

      I'm sure I'm missing something.

      My configuration is as follow :
      - jboss 4.0.5 GA with EJB 3 module (I'm working with seam)
      - MySQL 5 (with the truncation bug fixed)
      - jboss portal 2.6.1

      Ok so I downloaded jboss portal and started to read (RTFM, right ?).
      I did exactly as it is written for the installation from binary distribution (not the bundle one).
      I created the DB, modified the xml file.
      I placed the .sar and the *-ds.xml in my serder/default/deploy directory.

      I launched jboss and baamm !
      I got a ClassNotFoundException for org.jboss.varia.scheduler.Scheduler. I started to search and found the package 20 minutes later (scheduler-plugin.jar). It's not written in the documentation !
      I relaunched jboss, everything installed. Ok great !
      I glanced at the schema and the data in MySQL, sounds ok to me.
      I opened firefox and go to http://127.0.0.1/portal.
      It 's working,great !
      So I decided to login with admin/admin or user/user.
      Everytime I try to submit the form I've got a "null" just above the form. I created a new account just to test it. The creation worked fine as I can see the datas in the DB. Again I try to login with this new account and same thing always this "null" above the form. So my portal is working fine but I can't login ;o). What a joke !!!

      I tried a lot of thing with MySQL and I did search on this very forum and on internet but I couln't find my 2 problems.
      For the first one you can admit that you can give this scheduler-plugin.jar with the portal.jar, no ?

      If you have any idea with my second problem or if you know another portal solution. I'm aware.

      Cheers.

      Christophe

          It is not indicated in the documentation because this shouldn't happen! The default AS configuration (as found in server/default) contains scheduler-plugin.jar in the lib directory. However, since you installed the EJB3 module, you must have used the JEMS installer and IIRC, there were some issues with using the installer and Portal. As I am not familiar with the JEMS installer, I'll try to get an answer from someone who knows more about it than I do.

          This is not normal either... :) Do you see any messages in the console that could help us figure out what's going on?

            Hi,

            I did, indeed, install Jboss AS with JEMS-installer. But you may add this in your documentation. Well...

            I have absolutely nothing in the logs. I only have this "null" right above the form after submitted it.
            I even try to modify the password directly in MySQL. Nothing works.

            cheers.

            Christophe.

              You should * really* read the doc.

              IT says:

              Warning
              Make sure to download the JBoss AS Zip version. DO NOT ATTEMPT to deploy JBoss Portal on the installer version of JBoss AS! We are currently working on aligning the Application installer with JBoss Portal.


              If you use the JEMS installer it's at your own risk, don't blame the documentation.

                Even for the "null" thing on the form ?

                cheers.

                  It is obviously related on how you installed JBoss Portal since you are the only one mentioning this problem.


                  Install JBoss AS 4.0.5 from the zip version then install EJB3 and Portal if you want to try out.
