MessageDear Nikolaj,

we have a problem atm as many changes are occuring, yet
many of the 'core' developers are pressed for time. Please let
us know whether this works for you, what doesn't and everything
that is unclear to you so we can improve our "newbie" process.

More information on the hello world demo is at

>From what I gather, you looked at the "Phoenix Developer Kit",
which is, unfortunately, very out of date. Instead, try to get
the latest versions of Phoenix and Hello World and install those.

You will need to use CVS to get all the files to build and run it.
See http://jakarta.apache.org/site/cvsindex.html.
(you will need the modules jakarta-avalon-phoenix
and jakarta-avalon-apps).
I'll assume you downloaded the modules into a dir ".".

1) download and install ant (jakarta.apache.org/ant), set ANT_HOME
to where you installed it (more information on all this is available on
the ant website and in the ant docs)
2) go to ./jakarta-avalon-phoenix
3) type "ant dist"
4) go to ./jakarta-avalon-apps/demo
5) type "ant install"
6) go to ./jakarta-avalon-phoenix/dist/bin
7) execute run.bat or run.sh depending on your platform
8) phoenix should start
9) take a look at ./jakarta-avalon-phoenix/dist/logs/phoenix.log

that should get you started (I hope). After you've looked at
what happens, try and read all of the "Developing with Avalon"
paper that is on the website for more understanding of what
Avalon is about.

  Hi, Leo

  I saw your "newbie-issues" folder in the current avalon nightly build.
Well, it just confirms my discoveries, so I hope that you are already ahead
of me and point me to (provide) the pieces of the Avalon's Hello World demo.

  I downloaded the 4/16/2002 version of the avalon's nightly builds and was
able to find the java sources for that application. However, I do not have:


  In addition I would need the build.xml, most likely, since I have no idea
how to build the .sar file, which is supposedly created as a part of the
cornerstone build, but it is not.

  I exchanged a few messages with Paul Hammant, only to gather that he is
too busy at the moment. I cannot wait any more to create something with
Avalon, so I am hoping you can help.
