    Debian(Sarge) Install Jboss Eclipse JBossIDE DVDStore

    Doug Baker Newbie

      I have tried unsuccessfully to install Eclipse 3.2 and JBoss IDE 2 with many
      flavors of JBoss AS 4.0.4GA, 4.0.5GA on Debian (sarge)Linux. Problems?
      Too many to mention. Basically I proceeded with each configuration
      searched the install notes and JBoss user forums
      until I hit a road block and moved on to another configuration.

      After months of weekend efforts I have one configuration that works on
      Debian linux. This is a brief overview and not at all complete and I apologize for that.

      Perhaps this note will generate other sucess stories of Jboss and Eclipse IDE installations on Debian Linux platforms (or other Linux platforms).

      If this generate interest I will provide more detail if requested.

      1. Install jboss-4.0.3SP1 with JRE 1.5.0_06-b05
      2. Install eclipse eclipse-SDK-3.1.2-linux-gtk.tar.gz
      3. rm workspace
      4. untar JBossIDE-1.5RC1-Bundle-linux-gtk.tar.gz to /myusr/local/JBossIDE-1.5RC1-Bundle-linux-gtk_tar_gz directory
      5. Start eclipse -data workspace &
      6. Select Help > Software Updates > Find and Install...
      Select Search for new features to install, and press Next >
      Select New Local Site... from the right menu.
      7. select JBossIDE-1.5RC1-Bundle-linux-gtk_tar_gz directory
      and proceed to install all.

      8. Now for install hibernate plug in. This may not be necessary but anyway
      this is what I did.

      Select Help > Software Updates > Find and Install...
      Select Search for new features to install, and press Next >
      Select New Remote Site... from the right menu.
      In the dialog fill the name with JBoss Eclipse IDE and the
      URL with http://download.jboss.org/jbosside/updates/stable
      Make sure JBoss Eclipse IDE has a check next to it, and press Finish.
      Expand the JBoss Eclipse IDE tree, and check the release named JBossIDE 1.6
      and uncheck everthing except hibernate.

      9. Start Jboss AS cd /myusr/local/jboss-4.0.3SP1/bin
      type run.sh &
      Now in eclipse change workspace to workspaceDVDStore. On my machine this contians the old DVDStore project
      that has been temporarily out of service on the JBoss TrailBlazer link.
      That tutorial uses mysql which I could not get working with JBoss so I
      decided to use hibernate instead.
      10. To get project to see hibernate stuff using eclipse add new user
      library "hibernatejboss-4.0.3SP1" and select
      hibernate files from


      10. Add JSF libs by creating a new user lib libJSFjboss-4.0.3SP1 libs
      and EJB3 lib from jboss-4.0.3SP1 as in step 10 above.

      11. Go the the JBoss console http://localhost:8080/jmx-console/HtmlAdapter
      select database=localDB,service=Hypersonic,
      click on startDatabaseManager() and this will pop up a database manager dialog
      that allows you to query the database and/or populate tables.
      You should at least see all the tables for the DVDStore.
