    Problems facing Installation of JBoss

    Raj kumar Newbie

      Could you help further in going ahead with this installation. I have followed the following steps.

      From Binary

      1. I have downloaded the jboss AS 4.0.2.zip and extracted the same in my E:/Server and renamed the same folder as E:/Server/jboss
      2. Then I downloaded the jboss portal 2.4.zip and also extracted the same in E:/ seperately.
      3. Then I set the environmental variables as follows;-
      PATH: C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_08\lib; E:\Server\jboss\lib;
      CLASSPATH: C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_08\bin; E:Server\jboss\bin;
      JAVA_HOME: C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_08
      JBOSS_HOME: E:\Server\jboss
      4. Then I created a SQL Server Data base instance in another system and granted rights for me. The db details are host:pegsrv; username: peguser ; password: password.
      5. Then I copied the jdbc driver files pertaining to Sql server i.e, msbase.jar, msutil.jar, mssqlserver.jar into the E:\server\jboss\default\lib directory of the AS.
      6. Then I configure the portal-sqlsdrver-ds.xml file as follows
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <local-tx-datasource>
      <jndi-name>PortalDS</jndi-name>
      <connection-url>jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://pegasrv:1433;tds=8.0;lastupdatecount=true</connection-url>
      <driver-class>com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver</driver-class>
      <user-name>peguser</user-name>
      password
      </local-tx-datasource>


      7. Then I copied this file along with the portal.sar file into the E:\server\jboss\default\deploy directory of the AS.
      8. Then I started the run.bat file in the E:\server\jboss\bin
      9. The server got started, now I pointed the browser to http://localhost:8080 and saw the server console
      10. Now I pointed the same to http://localhost:8080/portal and i got the http -500 error.



      From Bundled version jboss 2.4 portal +AS


      1. First I downloaded the bundle and unzipped the same to E:/Server/. Then renamed the same E:/Server/jboss.
      2. Then I set the environmental variables as follows;-
      PATH: C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_08\lib; E:\Server\jboss\lib;
      CLASSPATH: C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_08\bin; E:Server\jboss\bin;
      JAVA_HOME: C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_08
      JBOSS_HOME: E:\Server\jboss
      3. Then I created a SQL Server Data base instance in another system and granted rights for me. The db details are host:pegsrv; username: peguser ; password: password.
      4. Then I copied the jdbc driver files pertaining to Sql server i.e, msbase.jar, msutil.jar, mssqlserver.jar into the E:\server\jboss\default\lib directory of the AS.
      5. Then I configure the portal-sqlsdrver-ds.xml file as follows
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <local-tx-datasource>
      <jndi-name>PortalDS</jndi-name>
      <connection-url>
      jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://pegasrv:1433;tds=8.0;lastupdatecoun
      t=true </connection-url>
      <driver-class>com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver
      </driver-class>
      <user-name>peguser</user-name>
      password
      </local-tx-datasource>
      </datasources

      Then I configure the following xml files in the default/conf directoy of the server. The standardjaws.xml file is configured with Hypersonic database by default. So I configured JBoss server with MS SQL Server database modify /server/default/conf/standardjaws.xml configuration file. Set
      and <type-mapping> elements. java:/MSSQLDS</datasource
      <type-mapping>MS SQLSERVER2000</type-mapping>

      The standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml configuration file is configured with Hypersonic database.
      So i configured JBoss server with MS SQL Server modify /server/default/conf/standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml configuration file. Set
      and <datasource-mapping> elements. <jbosscmp-jdbc> java:/MSSQLDS <datasource-mapping>MS SQLSERVER2000</datasource-mapping>

      </jbosscmp-jdbc>

      Then I modified the login-config.xml configuration file with MS SQL Server
      database settings. Added the following

      <application-policy/> element to login-config.xml. <application-policy name = "MSSQLDbRealm"> <login-module code = "org.jboss.resource.security.ConfiguredIdentityLoginModule" flag = "required"> <module-option name = "principal">sa</module-option> <module-option name = "userName">sa</module-option> <module-option name = "password"></module-option> <module-option name ="managedConnectionFactoryName"> jboss.jca:service=LocalTxCM,name=MSSQLDS
      </module-option> </login-module> </application-policy>

      By modifying the mssql-ds.xml, standardjaws.xml, standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml and login-config.xml the JBoss 4.0 server is configured to be used with a MS SQL Server database.


      With the embedded hypersonic database it too worked fine, but when I configured my dbase for the bundled version, I am getting the below error

      HTTP Status 500 -
      ________________________________________
      type Exception report

      .

      Please could anyone suggest me how to retrieve this issue. For your convenience I am attaching the some of the server logs also with this post.

          I this a typo:

          I have downloaded the jboss AS 4.0.2.zip


          Didn't you mean 4.0.4.GA?? You should be using 4.0.4.GA.

          Did you see this text among the errors:

          Reason: org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Invalid XML: file=file:/E:/S erver/jboss/server/default/conf/standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml@51:17; - nested throwa
          ble: (org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The string "--" is not permitted within com
          ments.)


          Fix your standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml file. (I checked my JBoss install, both 4.0.2 and 4.0.4.GA, and there were no comments around line 51 in that file. Did you make changes to the file?)

            No Peter i am using 4.0.2 final version along with jboss portal 2.4 final version. Also i have downloaded the bundled version of jboss 2.4 +AS. Now answer my queries only for the bundled version. i have rectified the error in standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml. But still i am getting the error 401 i.e This requires Http authenication error while accessing the portal. i think Mbeans are the main problem for this. Please find attached my logs.

              I have run Portal 2.4 with AS 4.0.4, but not with AS 4.0.2. So I don't know if that combination works or is even supported.

              But based on the messages, it would appear that your data source configuration file is incorrect, possibly the user id or password for the database is incorrect.

              And you are using SQL Server. 2000 or 2005? Not that it really matters. I have not used 2005 and 2000 has been dormant and disabled on my PC for years (I use both MySQL and PostgreSQL with Portal).

                h!

                I'm using
                JBoss Portal + JBoss AS 2.4 Production (2006-08-19)

                I think I'm having kind of the same problem:

                whenever I start Jboss and requests a portal page with http://localhost:8080/portal the following exception is thrown:

                08:53:41,789 ERROR [PortalServlet] Invocation exception

                jboss restart doesn't help, but when i recopy the mysql-ds.xml to the jboss deploy dir suddenly the portal is starting, and the previous error doesn't occur again.

                the portalDS which is configured in the mysql-ds.xml is in the JNDI tree both before and after redeploying of the mysql-ds.xml. the configuration of the datasource is ok, otherwise it wouldnt function after redeploying i think ...

                it's not that terrible, but a bit unconvenient ... I would say it's a bug.

                  ok, I solved the problem for me:

                  the cause for the exception was simply that the mysql jdbc driver was not registered at the time the *-ds.xml files were intialized.

                  the solution was to copy the mysql-connector-*.jar to /jboss/server/default/lib

                  so the mysql driver is available from the beginning, and the datasources are initialized correctly.

                  hope that this is also a useful hint for the original poster.
