    starting up jBPM 4.3

    zecas zecas Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I'm starting to use jBPM, and I'm trying to setup my environment. I'm having some troubles, any help solving would be appreciated.

       

      I'm not a JBoss expert, so I'm learning it as I'm moving through the process.

       

      I've downloaded jboss-5.1.0.GA, extracted to a specific directory, say c:/x/jboss-5.1.0.GA, and that would be my application server location.

       

      I already have MySQL 5.1.22 running on default port 3306.

       

      I've also downloaded jbpm-4.3, and extracted it to say c:/jboss/jbpm-4.3. As I want to learn things the hard way , instead of just trying to install a demo, I just went to the install directory and looked into build.xml file. Then I started changing and executing targets:

       

      [Step A] Database schema

       

      I created a jbpm4 schema in mysql database, with a specific user proper permissions. I updated the jbpm-4.3/install/jdbc/mysql.properties accordingly.

       

      Instead of passing a parameter, I just changed database property:

       

      <property name="database" value="mysql" /> <!-- {hsqldb | mysql | oracle | postgresql} -->

       

      Then I executed "ant create.jbpm.schema".

       

      Build succesfull, and I've checked that the schema contained the (empty) tables required by jbpm engine.

       

      [Step B] Installing jBPM

       

      I wanted to execute "install.jbpm.into.jboss" target, so I've changed the "jboss.home" parameter:

       

      <property name="jboss.home" value="c:/x/jboss-5.1.0.GA" />

       

      Since I have jboss installed, I didn't change any other parameters.

       

      I executed "ant install.jbpm.into.jboss".

       

      The build was successfull.

       

      [Step C] Creating some users

       

      Don't know if they are needed at this point, but I just looked into "load.example.identities" target, and checking that it executes the "${jbpm.home}/install/src/demo/example.identities.sql", I opened the script to see it.

       

      It is a simple script, so I just executed it manually against the schema. Success.

       

       

      So far so good ... I learned something, and setup was running great.

       

      Then the problems came, and so my questions.

       

      I started JBoss with "ant jboss.start" to make things easier, apparently startup was successfull.

       

      1# Accessing http://localhost:8080/admin-console/ (after authentication) displays the WAR projects: gwt-console-jbpm.war, gwt-console-server-jbpm.war, jbpmeditor.war.

       

      When accessing http://localhost:8080/jbpm-console/ I can see the login screen, but I cannot access it, with any of the users I inserted into the database.

       

      Maybe some other user? What is the default one, and where can I see those definitions?

       

      2# Accessing the jbpm editor which has the context root jbpmeditor (I've checked in jboss console), through http://localhost:8080/jbpmeditor/ will give me a "HTTP Status 404 - /jbpmeditor/" error.

       

      Restarting the application displays no errors on ".../server/default/log/*.log" files.

       

       

      What am I missing here?

       

      Any help appreciated.

       

       

      Thanks
