    How do I install GateIn 3.0.0-GA on existing JBoss AS 5.1

    Tony Bryan Newbie

      I must be missing something obvious here.  I have a working JBoss AS 5.1 install running SOA Platform for development purposes.  I want to install GateIn on top of this, rather than running two JBoss AS instances on the same server.


      I've unzipped the GateIn 3.0.0 zip file, and located what appear to be the only relevant GateIn files:



      (I assumed that the gatein-sample-*.ear files are just that.... samples, and so have omitted them)


      These files have been copied to my pre-existing server/default/deploy directory, and then I restarted the server.  Unsurprisingly the portal fails to start properly, with the first exception being:

      Child not found gatein.ear/lib/exo.portal.webui.portal-3.0.0-GA.jar/conf/configuration.properties/


      A google search found:  http://community.jboss.org/message/539900, which in turn lined to https://jira.jboss.org/browse/JBEPP-320.  This suggests that the configuration file directory for GateIn has not been set, and provides a properties-service.xml file to resovle the issue.


      I have installed the suggested properties-service.xml file in my deploy directory.

      I can see in JMX admin console that the properties MBean has been loaded, but the portal still doesn't load

      I still get the same "Child not found" error.


      Is my approach to installing GateIn fundamentally wrong?
