    Building 3.0 w/ Tomcat

    Mike Finn Apprentice

      Am having problems figuring out how I can build JBoss 3 beta (any tag) from cvs with tomcat integrated. Default builds with jetty. It's gotta be more that just ripping out the jetty sar and drop in a tomcat sar, and dropping Tomcat 4.0.2/3 into $JBOSS/ . Where does the tomcat sar come from? I can't seem to find the target for it. I have jboss-all ckd out ( Hints, tips, or breadcrumbs would be appreciated...

          OK - I figured it out myself. This is how to do it (so far as I can tell)

          0. Check out jboss-all
          1. Build jboss (jboss-all/build/build.sh)
          2. Put the tomcat distro into jboss-all/catalina
          3. Modify the jboss-all/catalina/src/resources/jboss-service.xml file to correct the path to tomcat:
          e.g. <!ENTITY catalina.home "../jakarta-tomcat-4.0.3">
          will work for situations where tomcat is right in $JBOSS.
          4. Build the catalina target (jboss-all/catalina/build.sh)
          5. Drop the tomcat4-service.sar in jboss-all/build/output/jboss-3.0.0beta2/deploy.
          6. Remove the jetty-plugin.sar from jboss-all/build/output/jboss-3.0.0beta2/deploy.
          6. Copy tomcat distro dir into jboss-all/build/output/jboss-3.0.0beta2/.

          Start the server from jboss-all/build/output/jboss-3.0.0beta2/bin.

            Are you able to get EAR files deployed? Almost everything goes right for me, but JBoss throws up an exception when it tries to deploy to Tomcat. I get the following error:

            2002-04-14 19:27:26,416 DEBUG [org.jboss.deployment.MainDeployer] start step for

            Any clues? My random guess would be that Tomcat doesn't like the packed structure, or maybe the caret in the warUrl, but I'm really not sure.
