    Install jboss/jetty on MacOS Tiger

    Daniel Freeman Newbie

      I'm a Newbie stuck on the first hurdle. I wanted to install jboss, jetty and ant on MacOS 10.4 (The normal Mac OS, not the server version) . I was following the instructions on Apple's website:


      However, I had to deviate slightly from these instructions.

      On the jboss website, I found jboss-4.0.3SP1.zip. (I assumed it had jetty bundled)

      I decided to put it in /System/Library/jboss. (No /usr/local/ folder existed on my system - perhaps Server versions of MacOS X have a different directory structure)

      Well, I did my downloads, permissions, builds, and paths - then I ran into confusion.

      There was a build.xml file, where I had to edit paths that seemed to bear no relation to the directories in the jboss package I had downloaded.

      For example:-

       <property name="dist.root" value="/usr/local/jboss/JBoss-2.4.4_Jetty-3.1.3-1/"/>
       <property name="jboss.dist" value="${dist.root}/jboss"/>
       <property name="jboss.deploy.dir" value="${jboss.dist}/deploy"/>

      But there were no directories containing the string 'jetty', nor 'deploy'? Had I downloaded the wrong thing?

      Furthermore, the command 'ant' wasn't recognised. (perhaps the export PATH was wrong?)

      Does anyone have any simple instructions that would enable me to play with server-side J2EE on my Mac?
