    jbpm-5.4.0.Final-installer-full.zip fails to install

    Al Koch Novice



      I'm new to jBMP and need to evaluate it.  I have purchased the text jBPM 5 Developer Guide by Mauricio Salatino and Esteban Aliverti and am following the instructions in Chapter 4 for installation using jbpm-5.4.0.Final-installer-full.zip:

      - I have a fresh Windows 7 machine.

      - I have installed the latest Jave EE SDK.

      - I have installed the latest Ant.

      - I launch the installtion with ant install.demo > InstallLog.txt.


      The installation runs for a while but then terminates with the following:

      C:\jbpm-installer>ant install.demo > InstallLog.txt

           [copy] Warning: Could not find file C:\jbpm-installer\db\jbpm-persistence.xml to copy.

           [copy] Warning: Could not find file C:\jbpm-installer\db\task-persistence.xml to copy.

           [copy] Warning: Could not find file C:\jbpm-installer\db\Taskorm.xml to copy.



      C:\jbpm-installer\build.xml:254: Can't get http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/downloads/release/helios/SR2/eclipse-java-helios-SR2-win32.zip to C:\jbpm-installer\lib\eclipse-java-helios-SR2-win32.zip


      Total time: 2 minutes 5 seconds




      I'm not sure how serious the Warnings are but the failure to install Eclipse is fatal.  I assume this error is because Helios is several versions back and is no longer at the supplied URL. Why would the latest installer still reference an out-of-date version of Eclipse?


      Can someone please help me with the following:

      - How do I get a successful installation?  I'd really prefer to have the current version of Eclipse (Kepler) installed so is it possible to alter the installation to do that?

      - How do I resolve the Warnings?

      - Once I can get the demo setup and get familar wirth the system I will need to incorporate jBPM into an existing code base managed by Eclipse Kepler.  How do I locate documentation describing how to install the various components (the jBMP Eclipse plugin, the jBMP system itself, the GWT console code and so forth)?


      Thank you for your help.
