jbpm-6.3.0 : Demo Setup Failure and Resolution in windows 8 > ant install.demo

Version 1

    Hello All,


    This is my first post in this forum.

    I just downloaded jbpm-6.3.0.Final-installer-full.zip and tried setting up my machine to start up with jBPM by following Chapter 3. jBPM Installer.

    As per section 3.3 I had to run ant install.demo after setting up JAVA_HOME (jdk1.7.0_67), ANT_HOME(ant1.7.1), and PATH as env variables.

    On running the first issue I got is as below-




    C:\Jbpm\jbpm-6.3.0.Final-installer-full\jbpm-installer\build.xml:293: The specified destination is a directory

    Total time: 3 minutes 30 seconds

    After spending some time I realized that it was failing in ant <get ...> calls.


    <get src="${hibernate4.download.url}/hibernate-core/4.3.11.Final/hibernate-core-4.3.11.Final.jar" dest="${install.home}/lib/hibernate4" />

    Then i modified each <get...> calls in the build.xml file with proper file name in 'dest' attribute, a sample is given below

    <get src="${hibernate4.download.url}/hibernate-core/4.3.11.Final/hibernate-core-4.3.11.Final.jar" dest="${install.home}/lib/hibernate4/hibernate-core-4.3.11.Final.jar" />

    After that when i ran ant install.demo then everything went fine.

    Hope this is useful.
