I tried to follow the tutorial this weekend and I found
myself facing those little details all of us know about.
Things seem easier than they are. I think the next points should be part of the tutorial:
1) W2K : ANT 1.4.1 BUG IN W2K
It has been reported and it is an easy to fix bug. So if your system cannot find ant after installing it add the line:
just at the beginning of ant.bat
2) W2K&LINUX: Setting Directories:
Many environment variables have to be setup before launching JBoss and ant; in my system they are:
SET CLASSPATH = G:\jdk1.3.1_01\include;G:\j2sdkee1.3\lib;G:\JBOSS\JBoss-2.4.4\lib;.\
Under linux you should do the equivalent.
So set them up properly.
3)LINUX: HOTSPOT JVM seems not to be working properly under some
Linux installations (Mandrake 8.0 for me).
-> Use another JVM
I fixed it editing ¿build.xml, I think? (now I am under W2K) and setting HOT_SPOT="", this will work slower so I suggest installing another JVM (How?)
I hope this helps someone.
